Alice Wolfle

PhD Researcher

Alice Wolfle is a PhD candidate at the University of Southampton, based in the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Department of Social Statistics and Demography. Her PhD is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) South Coast Doctoral Training Partnership (SCDTP).

During her doctoral studies, Alice’s research has focused on the impact of seasonal variation on health and nutrition in low- and middle-income countries, with a particular focus in Bangladesh. Given the increasing unpredictability of seasonal weather patterns due to climate change, understanding the multifaceted effects of seasonality on various aspects of people’s lives has become a critical area of research.

Alice first became interested in climate change and health during her BSc in Population and Geography at the University of Southampton. She also gained an MSc in Social Research Methods at the University of Southampton, before becoming a student at the European Doctoral School of Demography (EDSD) hosted by the Autonomous University of Barcelona. Recently, Alice completed an internship at the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) in the Statistics Division.
