His overall research interest is linking disasters and health, including the integration of climate change into disaster research and health research. That covers three main areas: (i) disaster diplomacy and health diplomacy ; (ii) island sustainability involving safe and healthy communities in isolated locations ; and (iii) risk education for health and disasters
"This paper aims to end the separation amongst development topics, starting with basic definitions to set a science-based joint agenda regarding climate change, disasters, and sustainability. I am delighted that the journal has recognised the importance of this topic through the award, so that we could continue to join forces to use science for serving society," said Dr Kelman.
