Dr James Lopez Bernal
BMedSci MBBS MSc PhD MFPH
15-17 Tavistock Place
I am a public health doctor and split my time between service work on communicable disease control at the National Infections Service in Colindale and research at LSHTM. I have been at LSHTM since 2011, initially as an NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow, then as Clinical Lecturer and MRC Population Health Science Doctoral Fellow.
Much of my research has focussed on quasi-experimental study design, including my PhD on the use if interrupted time series for the evaluation of public health interventions. More recently my interest in both my clinical and academic work has focussed on immunisations, including the evaluation of new vaccines and both individual level and population level factors affecting vaccine effectiveness and impact.
I also serve as a medical advisor for the British Paediatric Surveillance Unit.
I teach on the preparation for Membership of Faculty of Public Health Part A seminar series and co-organise the Interrupted Time Series sessions in the Evaluation of Public Health Interventions module.
My research interests lie in study design, evaluation, and immunisations.
