Dr Peninah Murage
15-17 Tavistock Place
I am the co-Deputy Director of the LSTHM Centre on Climate Change and Planetary Health. Prior to joining LSHM I completed a PhD in population and health geography. I have extensive experience working in public health policy and have previously worked with both Public Health England and the Department of Health.
I am the deputy module organiser for the Environmental Health and Sustainable Development MSc module.
I research the impact of environmental change on health with a specific focus on climate change.
My research focus is on examining the health effects of changes in the environment, focusing on climate change and adaptation and mitigation. My broader interests are in applying a Planetary Health approach on research, specifically to understand the interdependencies between people and natural systems, and transdisciplinary approaches to achieving health and sustainable development.
