Mr Daniel Carter
in Social Epidemiology
15-17 Tavistock Place
I obtained my MSc in Medical Statistics from LSHTM in 2016 and am presently completing a Staff PhD in Epidemiology. I have previously held research posts at McGill University and at the Centre for Evidence Based Medicine at Oxford University.
I am presently the module facilitator across the statistical modules in EPH. I lead on methods teaching for the Social Epidemiology module, where I deliver sessions on multivariate methods, mediation, and causality. I lecture on causality on the DL Advanced Statistical Methods in Epidemiology module. I also lead practical sessions for Statistics for EPH, where I have generated new content focussing on the R programming language. Some of my teaching materials are available on my github.
My primary research interest is in the intersection of causal inference and social epidemiology. My applied work has specifically focussed on measuring the impact of complex social exposures on a number of public health areas including HIV and tuberculosis. The role of social protection in TB control is a particular area of applied interest, and working closely with Delia Boccia, I have collaborated on this topic with a number of partners from international organisations such as the WHO, WFP, and UNICEF.
