Dr Oliver Robinson is a research fellow at the MRC-PHE centre for Environment and Health. He rejoined Imperial College in 2016 after completing a post-doctoral position at the Centre for Research in Environmental Epidemiology (CREAL), Barcelona, where he was scientific coordinator of the European FP7 HELIX project ( Prior to this he graduated from the University of Sussex with a First Class Honours degree in Human Sciences and obtained an MSc in Modern Epidemiology at Imperial College. He was then awarded a PhD in Biomedical Research in 2013 by Imperial College for his work investigating the combined role of plant contaminants and the pesticide DDT in an outbreak of severe liver disease in rural Ethiopia.

His research interests lie in the field of molecular and environmental epidemiology and environmental justice. He is interested in investigating the joint effects of multiple factors using multi-disciplinary and ‘omic’ approaches. He is currently researching the impact of the ‘early life exposome’ on child development and is involved in two collaborative European projects EXPOsOMICS ( and LIFEPATH (
