Dr Jamie Lachman

  • Research Fellow (MRC/CSO Social & Public Health Sciences Unit)

Biography

I am a research associate in the Complexity Programme at the MRC/CSO Social and Public Health Sciences Unit. I am also a research associate at the University of Oxford Department of Social Policy and Intervention and the executive director and founder of Clowns Without Borders South Africa (www.cwbsa.org), and a co-founder of the Parenting for Lifelong Health initiative. I have over 15 years of experience developing, testing, and scaling up family and parenting programmes to reduce violence against children and improve child wellbeing in over 20 low- and middle-income countries for more than 250,000 beneficiaries. Along with being an academic, I am also a storyteller, banjo-player, songwriter, facilitator, and clown. Dedicated to promoting our human capacity for peace and laughter, I strive to live each day fully with compassion and amazement. 

Research interests include parenting programmes, transferability, violence prevention, implementation and prevention science, programme dissemination and scale-up, and optimising behavioural interventions for effectiveness, efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and scalability.
