Our research mainly addresses the impacts of climate change on health, with particular focus on the evaluation of adaptation strategies, mitigation policies and air pollution co-benefits. The main research lines are:
- Evaluation of current and future temperature-related health impacts in Switzerland and overseas.
- Characterization of the impact of the urban heat island effect on health.
- Identification of potential etiological mechanisms explaining the association between heat and specific diseases.
The group is member of the Multi-City Multi-Country Collaborative Research Network, and the Oeschger Center of Climate Change Research of the University of Bern.
