I am a medical doctor and an environmental epidemiologist. My research is mainly focused on evaluating the impact of urban green spaces and extreme weather conditions on human health. Here in our centre, we have in-house expertise and a wide range of datasets useful to study health effects of green spaces and extreme weather conditions. Among different projects, we are coordinating FP7-funded project PHENOTYPE (www.phenotype.eu) investigating the health effects of green spaces and their underlying mechanisms among different European populations.
