Medicine | Policy | Evidence Synthesis | Meta-research


Dr. Soumyadeep Bhaumik

I am a medical doctor and international public health specialist working on evidence synthesis, meta-research & health policy. I also work on snakebite, a neglected public health problem. In doing my work, I have employed and innovated on a diverse range of methodologies (systematic reviews, rapid evidence synthesis, national evidence gap maps,qualitative research, and lot quality assurance sampling) and engaged in science advocacy. My work has informed multiple WHO guidelines, national and sub-national health policies, and has often stimulated public debates. At a larger scale, I am interested in ensuring fit-for-purpose research methods which can inform policy and practice. I am also interested in addressing equity and understanding ethics and moral philsophies which underpin current research and global health ecosystems.

I was featured in the list of top 2% of researchers cited globally in 2019 (General & Internal Medicine field) in an analysis by Stanford University published in PloS Biology.
