James Woodcock is a public health researcher working in the field of sustainable transport. His research has resulted in high impact publications and has informed the work of key stakeholders including the WHO and government bodies.
James has led the development of ITHIM (Integrated Transport and Health Impact Model). ITHIM is a novel tool that jointly includes the three health impact pathways physical activity, air pollution and road traffic injuries and links these to greenhouse gas emissions.
James Woodcock has recently been awarded an MRC Centenary Award and will be developing ITHIM using a system dynamic modelling approach to represent how changes in cycling uptake might occur.
