Maryam Kebbe

BSc, PhD


Postdoctoral Researcher

I am working with the Health Behaviours team in the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences. My research serves as an extension of the BWeL trial and focuses on developing brief behaviourally-informed opportunistic interventions for referral to commercial weight management services.

Prior to my appointment at the University of Oxford, I completed my PhD in Medical Sciences (Pediatrics) at the University of Alberta, Canada. Within my PhD, I developed and evaluated a patient-centred, bilingual (English and French) tool (CCAs) for lifestyle modification and behaviour change in adolescents with obesity. This included conducting mixed-methods research (evidence synthesis projects, qualitative and quantitative inquiry, clinical trials) and knowledge translation in partnership with Obesity Canada.

As a Graduate Research Assistant in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Alberta, I also examined chronic disease and cancer prevention within primary care as part of the BETTER WISE project. 

I continue to be involved in teaching nutrition undergraduate courses, mentorship, conference organizing activities, and promoting patient engagement in research, including founding and co-leading the Patient-Oriented Research Collection on CMAJ Open.
