Desislava Petrova

I have a PhD in physics (climate dynamics) from the University of Barcelona. Previously, I was in the University of Bristol (United Kingdom), where I did a Master on geophysical fluid dynamics. My current research is focused on climate variability and the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO). I have expertise in natural hazards, dynamical systems, climate modelling, time series modelling and analysis, as well as climate prediction and predictability.

Project: Arctic Impact on Weather and Climate (Blue-Action).

Simon Lloyd

I work on population health and the environment, predominantly focussing on the health impacts of climate change, including undernutrition, diarrhoeal disease, labour productivity losses, and coastal flooding. I have also worked on healthy sustainable cities. My research has led to invitations to develop climate-health models and/or to contribute to expert meetings for the World Health Organization, the World Bank, and the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs.

Project: EvaluaciĆ³n de los Cambios Recientes en Mortalidad y Vulnerabilidad Humana en Europa (EURO-ADAPT).

Marcos Quijal

My current research focuses on the study of the non-linear association between temperature and mortality. I am developing distributed lag non-linear models to assess the socioeconomic inequalities in adaptation to extreme temperatures and bayesian models to study the temperature-mortality association at small area level.

Hicham Achebak

I am a researcher at the Centre for Demographic Studies (CED), and a research associate of the Climate and Health Program at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal). My current research focuses on the study of the impact of climate change on temperature-related mortality and birth outcomes in Spain.
