Dr Roger Nascimento teaches in the MSc in International Health and Tropical Medicine, an interdisciplinary course of the Centre for Tropical Medicine and Global Health, University of Oxford. He is the inaugural Stevens Barlow Junior Research Fellow of Regent's Park College and a Research Affiliate of the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography. As part of his postdoctoral training at the Nuffield Department of Medicine, Roger is studying for a Postgraduate Certificate in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education while serving as tutor of the Oxford Study Skills Centre at Lady Margaret Hall.
Roger is intellectually committed to anti-racist approaches to (and interventions in) scholarship, leadership, and governance. He conducts participant-observation to investigate positive action initiatives and affirmative action programs aimed at tackling historical racial injustices, contemporary inequities, and future foreseeable disparities. He employs literature and archive research to review early accounts of anti-racist policies and recent experiences of mainstreaming leadership forged among minority social groups (racial, ethnic, religious, linguistic, national, political, occupational, sexual, and disability minorities)
For instance, Roger observes people from a wide scope of professional occupations, especially those working in multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary, international, or cross-cultural situations, to examine how past and current ideas and practices of professional work can help us make sense of our human condition, cultural predicament, and social values. His analyses of professional experiences specifically contribute to imagining new perspectives on continuous professional education strategies, international higher education development, and global public health research.
