Oliver Mytton

I am currently an NIHR Academic Clinical Lecturer (Public Health Medicine), MRC Epidemiology Unit, Cambridge.

During my specialty training in Oxford, I undertook attachments at Thames Valley HPU, NHS Berkshire West, the University of Oxford (British Heart Foundation Health Promotion Group), and the National Heart Forum.

My principal interests are policies and population-level initiatives to promote physical activity and better nutrition. In particular I have examined the role of fiscal incentives (taxes and subsidies) in promoting health and the role of environment (eg green space, workplace parking) in supporting physical activity. I studied medicine at Cambridge and Oxford Universities and trained in General Medicine working in the UK, New Zealand and Thailand. From 2008-2010 I worked as a clinical advisor to the Chief Medical Officer for England. I hold an MPH from Harvard School of Public
