Campbell Robertson

PhD Researcher

Campbell is a postgraduate researcher at the University of East Anglia (UEA) with a background in Public Health and Epidemiology. His research is focused on using real-time mental health data from various healthcare settings within England to understand the psychological impact of population-level events. Much of his focus has been on the COVID-19 pandemic, analysing a holistic view of how the English population accessed mental health services. He is attempting to investigate whether changes in social restrictions (lockdowns) were associated with an increase in mental health presentations, as well as understanding whether there are any sex or age-related differences. Shifting away from COVID, he is also exploring the impact of flooding events within England and how they might affect mental health. This involves a geospatial approach, comparing presentations to healthcare settings in flooded and non-flooded areas. Campbell collaborates with the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA), Health Protection Research Unit (HPRU), and the Oxford Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP).
