Dr Peninah Murage

Assistant Professor

United Kingdom

I am an environmental epidemiologist with a PhD in Health Geography and a background in health policy. My work examines the health effects of changes in the environment and how sustainable adaptation and mitigation solutions can promote the rapid transition to a zero-carbon future. This draws from a multidisciplinary perspective to understanding the complex linkages between people, places and natural ecosystems, and identifying nature-based solutions that can simultaneously promote health, safeguard natural ecosystems and achieve sustainable development.
