Ben Lacey studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh, with postgraduate training in epidemiology and public health in Oxford. He holds an MSc in Global Health Science and a DPhil in Epidemiology (both from the University of Oxford), and is a Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health. He joined the Nuffield Department of Population Health in 2015, and was appointed as an Honorary Consultant Physician in Public Health at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust in 2017. His principal interest is in the use of electronic health records and large-scale prospective studies to understand the epidemiology of vascular and other chronic diseases.
