Dr Roberto Picetti
PhD MScPH FHEA
Environment & Health
I joined LSHTM in September 2014 after completing the MSc of Public Health (Environment and Health stream) at LSHTM.
I am currently a member of the Centre on Climate Change and Planetary Health.
I worked from 2017 to 2020 at the Clinical Trials Unit on data from trials involving the use of tranexamic acid to stop bleeding caused by traumas (e.g. WOMAN, TRAUMA-INTACT).
I worked from 2014 to 2017 at the NIHR Health Protection Research Unit at LSHTM. This unit is focused on Environmental Change and Health. In particular, I was involved in the project that was developing models for the quantification of current and future heat-related health burdens under alternative strategies of adaptation to climate and other environmental changes in the housing sector and the built environment.
I hold a 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 City.
I am a Module Organiser of Statistic for Epidemiology (Distance learning programme), and a Practical Facilitator on several modules on the MSc in Epidemiology.
I have been working on these projects:
• South Asian Nitrogen Hub (SANH). https://sanh.inms.international/
• Children, Cities and Climate (CCC). https://www.lshtm.ac.uk/research/centres-projects-groups/children-citie…
• Pathfinder Initiative. https://www.lshtm.ac.uk/research/centres-projects-groups/pathfinder-ini…
