I am a health and medical geographer who uses GIS and spatial epidemiological techniques in population and medical geography that enhance the complex interplay between disease, population and the environment. I also explore new theoretical perspectives to investigate how environmental change and uncertainties are understood and experienced by individuals and communities, across scales from the household to the nation.
