PhD, IIT Delhi
Rahul is currently a Research Associate with the Public Health Modelling group at MRC Epidemiology Unit, University of Cambridge. He completed his PhD at the Transportation Research and Injury Prevention Programme at the Indian Institute of Technology (TRIPP), Delhi. With a focus on data-poor, low-and-middle-income settings, he has a strong interest in primary data collection and use of statistical methods to estimate population-level risk due to traffic injuries, air pollution and lack of active travel. Currently, he is engaged in developing innovative use of Google Street View and satellite imagery to estimate travel patterns and traffic volume. His training at TRIPP gave him a strong inclination towards road safety issues. He is also leading the work on estimating small-area traffic injury risk across India. In the recent past he has used ecological observational studies to understand the association of injury risk with travel patterns and built environment in India.
