About me

Santosh is an alumnus of UWE, where he completed his MSc in Environmental Health and PhD in Public Health. In his MSc dissertation, he explored the utility of using hospital emergency department records to understand the distribution of injuries with a view to informing future research and data collection. His PhD research employed a multi-method approach to explore the environmental risks associated with unintentional childhood injuries within the home environment.

Following the completion of his studies, he worked as a Research Associate at the University of the West of England (UWE, Bristol), based in the Centre for Academic Child Health (CACH). He was involved in many research projects at the Nepal Injury Research Centre (NIRC), funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Global Health Research Group and sponsored by UWE, Bristol.

Santosh is currently working as a senior lecturer in public health at School of Health and Social Wellbeing, UWE Bristol, and leads several modules on the MSc and BSc Public Health programme. He is the module leader for research and project management skills and introduction to global public health (MSc Public Health); and introduction to evidence-based population health (BSc Public Health) programme.

Area of expertise

Santosh is experienced in quantitative and qualitative research methodologies as well as evidence synthesis (systematic reviews and meta-analysis). He is interested in research on injury prevention and safety promotion in low- and middle-income countries.
