Understanding the Impact of Climate Change on Human Health – Using Remote Sensing to Define Associations between Environmental Parameters and Vector-Borne Diseases

This Lord Kelvin-Adam Smith University of Glasgow-funded scholarship uses remotely-sensed data to investigate links between environmental variables (particularly aquatic) and vector and human population dynamics. The resulting disease transmission risk we will incorporate into a GIS predictive tool to document landscape epidemiology and project the relationship between climate change and disease patterns.

Principal Investigator: Dr Rhian Thomas
