I have a background in Environmental Sciences and Epidemiology and my principal research examines the impact that the natural environment has upon human health. Much of this research uses time series approaches to associate health outcomes with weather events (e.g. extreme rainfall) and thus the potential influence of climate change. I have been involved in a number of projects exploring the likely influence of climate change upon human health, including studies on drinking water quality, dengue fever, gastrointestinal infections and pollen induced allergy. Through my research I champion research impact, and recent work on food-borne disease and climate change has been cited in the UK Climate Change Risk Assessment and the 2014 IPCC Report.
