Samuel Yutong Cai

BMed, MSc, PhD


Senior Epidemiologist

Samuel is an environmental epidemiologist. His research interests include health effects of multiple environmental stressors and their potential modifiers, climate change, exposure assessment, respiratory epidemiology, and harnessing data science to better inform environmental health policy-making. He is a researcher of the PEAK-Urban programme and co-leading Informal Cities Health Programme, with Prof Kazem Rahimi, at Oxford Martin School. 

Samuel read preventive medicine (B.Med), with postgraduate training in epidemiology (MSc with distinction) and environmental epidemiology (PhD) at Imperial College London. Prior to joining Oxford, he was a MRC-funded research fellow at Imperial's MRC Centre for Environment and Health. He was actively involved in European consortia (e.g. ESCAPE, BioSHaRE) investigating health impacts of air pollution and traffic noise among several UK and European cohorts. During the fellowship, in collaboration with King's College London he set up a panel study in Beijing which investigated personal exposure to air pollution and COPD exacerbation patterns. He also collaborates with the Centre for Environmental Health and Sustainability at the University of Leicester to study early-life environmental exposures on childhood health. 

Samuel is a committee member of the UK/Ireland Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Society (OEES).
