Prof Rosie Green

Professor

United Kingdom

I am a Professor of Environment, Food and Health at LSHTM. I trained as an epidemiologist, and wrote my PhD thesis on the long-term health consequences of the wartime famine in Guernsey. I joined LSHTM in 2011 to study the relationships between diets, sustainability and health, and have since built a portfolio of research at the intersection of environmental change and health.

I am the head of the Planetary Health Group in the Department of Population Health and am also active in the Nutrition Group. I am a Co-Director of the LSHTM Centre on Climate Change and Planetary Health.

Teaching

I am a Module Organiser of Planetary Health in Practice for the MSc in Climate Change and Planetary Health, and I also supervise MSc students across a number of the School's MSc courses.

Research

My research focuses on the links between diets, the environment and human health, and I also have an interest in developing new methods and models to study these relationships.

I currently work on the Sustainable and Healthy Food Systems (SHEFS) programme, funded by the Wellcome Trust Our Planet Our Health programme to explore relationships between food systems, the environment and health in India, South Africa and the UK. I also work on the GCRF South Asia Nitrogen Hub, researching links between nitrogen flows and human health through food, water and air pollution, the AMPHoRA project researching actions to reduce air pollution from agriculture in the UK through dietary change, and the FACE-Africa project exploring agricultural adaptations to climate change in The Gambia.

I am the co-PI (with Professor Andy Haines) of the Lancet Pathfinder Commission, which aims to find pathways to a healthy zero-carbon future and communicate them to national and regional decision-makers around the world. In 2020 I was a member of the scientific panel for the UK Citizens Assembly on Climate Change.
