Ketan Shankardass builds on his training in epidemiology, public health, biology and geography to understand the drivers of population health from “cell to society”. He uses social epidemiology to support innovative solutions for more equitable health systems. His current areas of inquiry are intersectoral approaches to health equity by governments (e.g., Health in All Policies initiatives and the use of Health Impact Assessment tools); the interactive role of chronic stress and neighbourhood environments as drivers of chronic disease inequalities; and public opinion on health and equity.
