Until recently, I was 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.

Teaching

I am a co-module organiser for the Environmental Health and Sustainable Development MSc module.

Research

I research the impact of environmental changes on health and the evaluation of health and societal impacts of climate change adaptation and mitigation solutions - with a specific focus on nature-based and land restoration solutions.

My research examines the health effects of changes in the environment such as in modelling the impact of climate change, and assessing the impact of adaptation and mitigation solutions to promote the rapid transition to a zero-carbon future. I am particularly interested in unpicking the complex interdependencies between people and natural ecosystems and in identifying cross-disciplinary approaches to simultaneously promote health, safeguard natural ecosystems and achieve sustainable development.
