Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • World War II
  • Public health

Robin Room spends much of his time researching Environmental health, Injury prevention, Public health, Suicide prevention and Human factors and ergonomics. He has researched Environmental health in several fields, including Relative risk, Years of potential life lost, Epidemiology and Risk factor. In his study, Non-communicable disease is strongly linked to Communicable disease, which falls under the umbrella field of Years of potential life lost.

The concepts of his Injury prevention study are interwoven with issues in Social psychology, Occupational safety and health, Surgery and Gerontology. His work focuses on many connections between Gerontology and other disciplines, such as Demography, that overlap with his field of interest in Alcoholics Anonymous. His work deals with themes such as Substance abuse, Alcohol intoxication and Harm, which intersect with Suicide prevention.

His most cited work include:

  • A comparative risk assessment of burden of disease and injury attributable to 67 risk factors and risk factor clusters in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (7776 citations)
  • Disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) for 291 diseases and injuries in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (5887 citations)
  • Disability-adjusted life years (DALYs) for 291 diseases and injuries in 21 regions, 1990-2010: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 (5887 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Environmental health, Injury prevention, Psychiatry, Substance abuse and Suicide prevention. His studies deal with areas such as Alcohol, Alcohol consumption, Harm and Public health as well as Environmental health. His Harm study is associated with Social psychology.

He has included themes like Demography, Occupational safety and health, Human factors and ergonomics and Medical emergency in his Injury prevention study. His study in Addiction and Cannabis is carried out as part of his Psychiatry studies.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Environmental health (41.90%)
  • Injury prevention (32.61%)
  • Psychiatry (24.77%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2016-2021)?

  • Substance abuse (32.61%)
  • Environmental health (41.90%)
  • Harm (19.61%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Substance abuse, Environmental health, Harm, Public health and Psychiatry are his primary areas of study. His Substance abuse study combines topics in areas such as Alcohol consumption, Demography, Injury prevention, Suicide prevention and Human factors and ergonomics. His work on Mortality rate as part of general Demography research is frequently linked to Consumption, bridging the gap between disciplines.

Injury prevention and Occupational safety and health are commonly linked in his work. He combines Environmental health and Risk assessment in his research. He interconnects Domestic violence and Interpersonal relationship in the investigation of issues within Harm.

Between 2016 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Global, regional, and national comparative risk assessment of 84 behavioural, environmental and occupational, and metabolic risks or clusters of risks, 1990-2016 (788 citations)
  • Alcohol use and burden for 195 countries and territories, 1990-2016: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2016 (788 citations)
  • The relationship between different dimensions of alcohol use and the burden of disease-an update. (335 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Law
  • World War II
  • Public health

Robin Room mostly deals with Substance abuse, Environmental health, Public health, Psychiatry and Suicide prevention. His Substance abuse research includes themes of Alcohol, Alcohol consumption, Cross-sectional study, Demography and Harm. His Environmental health course of study focuses on Relative risk and Disease burden.

His study in the field of Harm reduction also crosses realms of Situated. His research in Suicide prevention intersects with topics in Injury prevention and Occupational safety and health. Much of his study explores Injury prevention relationship to Human factors and ergonomics.
