Vivian Lam

PhD Student, Department of Veterinary Medicine


I have an interdisciplinary background in public health, epidemiology and medical anthropology, and my interest in food and health is rooted in both research and employment. In 2017, I completed my MPhil thesis supervised by Dr. Jean Adams at CEDAR, where I researched voluntary policies on UK supermarket checkout foods and the healthfulness of these foods from a sample of stores. I joined EAT soon afterwards, an Oslo-based international non-profit organisation working towards global food systems transformation. In my capacity as Policy Officer, I was involved with the launch of “Food in the Anthropocene: the EAT-Lancet Commission on healthy diets from sustainable food systems”. Although my PhD research is unrelated to food, I remain passionate about food systems and hope to stay informed of interesting developments while I work towards a broader career in the interface between research and policy in global health.
