Mr Malcolm Mistry
Assistant Professor - MSCF
I am a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Research Fellow with background and training in climate modelling, econometrics and sectoral impacts assessment of climate change and variability. FolIowing my MSc in Weather and Climate Modelling from the University of Reading, U.K., I completed my PhD in Science and Management of Climate Change from Ca' Foscari University of Venice, Italy.
I have previously held academic and research positions at Ca' Foscari University of Venice and the Euro-Mediterranean Center on Climate Change (CMCC) - Italy, and Barcelona Supercomputing Centre (BSC) - Spain. Beyond research and academia, I sailed as a navigating officer onboard research and seismic survey ships, engaged in data acquisition of seabed profiles for offshore oil and gas industry.
I teach hands-on programing in R as part of the: (i) Programming module in MSc Health Data Science, and (ii) Introduction to Statistical Computing in Msc Medical Statistics. In addition, am also a lecturer in the Environmental Epidemiology module of MSc Public Health, and have previously been a Module Organiser of Environmental Health Policy in MSc Public Health.
Am part of the Environment and Health Modelling (EHM) Lab (https://www.lshtm.ac.uk/research/centres-projects-groups/ehm-lab) that focuses on developing and applying state-of-the-art modelling tools to investigate environmental health risks. My research interests include big data, sectoral impacts of climate change and variability, development of climate extreme and human discomfort indices for health impacts assessment and geospatial analysis. My other interests include High Performance Computing (HPC) and climate data visualization.
My current research as part of the Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellowship focuses on assessing temperature and humidity related mortality risk in current and future climate using high-resolution climate data from observations and climate model simulations.
Am also a co-admin of the LSHTM R Users Group (https://blogs.lshtm.ac.uk/rusers/)
