BIOGRAPHY


Dr. Rampal is a public health specialist and preventive medicine physician. He is an Associate Professor of Epidemiology and Biostatistics and heads the Department of Social and Preventive Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, University of Malaya.

Dr Rampal was medically trained in India and served in the Ministry of Health Malaysia from 1998 to 2005. The clinical experiences from his early medical career helped him realize that treating one patient at a time was not sufficient and more could be done by intervening at a population level. He improved his basic epidemiology and biostatistics knowledge by completing a MPH degree in 2004 from Harvard University. He joined University of Malaya in 2005 with the idea that intervening at the graduate level would improve the research skills of the medical and public health community. He completed his PhD in Epidemiology from Johns Hopkins University in 2014.

His research work focuses on the epidemiology and prevention of non-communicable diseases. He is particularly interested in elucidating their roles as common upstream factors utilizing common major pathways leading to the different Non Communicable Diseases. He hopes to further leverage this information to better design and implement more "Horizontal" prevention programs that ultimately would reduce the number of new patients seen by our healthcare system. His methodological interest includes improving causal inference, epidemiological designs, regression models, multiple imputations, measurement error, and propensity scoring.

Dr Rampal actively lectures at University of Malaya and is supervising 12 doctoral students. He has provided numerous methodological and biostatistical consultations to graduate students and clinical researchers. As of 2015, Dr Rampal has published 67 peer reviewed research papers, of which 53 are ISI indexed, and has an h-index of 15 with 3000+ citations.

 

Dr Rampal is the chairman for the Public Health Society, Malaysian Medical Association, and is a member of various international associations such as International Epidemiology Association, American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, Society for Epidemiology Research. He is a Fellow of the Academy of Medicine Malaysia and was the past honorary secretary for the College of Public Health Medicine from 2006-2009. He is also the current State Medical Officer for Malaysian Red Crescent Society WP Putrajaya.
