Dr Thomas Keegan

Director of Postgraduate Studies and Senior Lecturer in Epidemiology

Profile

Dr Tom Keegan joined the Division of Medicine as lecturer in epidemiology in August 2009. Before then he had worked as a researcher at the University of Oxford; on a historical cohort study of the military veterans who participated in human experiments at Porton Down between 1939 and 1989, and on environmental exposures and risk of childhood cancer.

At Lancaster, his research will continue to work in environmental and occupation epidemiology, with an interest in exposure measurement and modelling.
