Calum is a Research Associate who has a background in physical activity measurement and epidemiology.
More recently he led a project to examine how new neighbourhoods can act as ‘natural experiments’ to assess potential changes in the relationships between the built environment, active travel, physical activity and health.
Calum is an active part of the SPHR funded Age-Friendly Cities (AFC) team and has worked with colleagues at Cambridge and the University of Liverpool to test an evaluation tool designed to assess age-friendly initiatives in UK cities. The tool will ultimately be deployed to develop participatory planning guides for social policy makers.
He is also part of a team from Cambridge and Liverpool conducting an umbrella review of falls interventions in older people.
Calum has a PhD in the epidemiology of physical activity in children from the University of Bristol.
