Research summary

My research focuses on the relationships between the environment and health. This is particularly relevant in the context of climate change, where I look at the potential health benefits of climate change mitigation practices. My main research activities are for the Lancet Countdown's Working Group Mitigation Actions and Health Co-benefits. The Lancet Countdown is a yearly report which focuses on the links between climate change and health https://www.lancetcountdown.org/


I'm originally from mid-Wales. My PhD thesis, "Experienced temperature, health and the implications for the built environment”, was completed in 2019. Prior to that I completed Master's degrees in Energy Demand in the Built Environment from UCL, Linguistics from Queen Mary, Applied Mathematics from the Open University and Physics from Cambridge University. My undergraduate degree was also in Physics, from Oxford University.
