Dr Roberto Picetti
15-17 Tavistock Place
I joined LSHTM in September 2014 after completing the MSc in Public Health (Environment and Health stream) at LSHTM.
I have PhD in Molecular and Cellular Biology from the University of Strasbourg. Before joining LSHTM, I mostly worked on models of drug abuse (psychostimulants and opioids) at The Scripps Research Institute in San Diego and The Rockefeller University in New York.
I am currently involved in the NIHR Health Protection Research Unit focused on Environmental Change and Health. This unit aims to provide research to support decision making relating to the impacts and responses to climate and other environmental change. In particular, I am involved in the project that is developing models for quantification of current and future heat-related burdens under alternative strategies of adaptation in the housing sector and the built environment.
