Èrica Martínez

I did my PhD entitled "Effectiveness of the Spanish plan to prevent the health effects of high temperatures". I am interested on the health effects of climate change and rising temperatures, the identification of different vulnerable population groups and the definition and improvement of adaptation mesures to cope with climate change.

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.

Vijendra Ingole

My research is focused on environmental epidemiology and the interplay of climate change and health. I did my PhD at Umea University (Sweden), and I was also a research fellow at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (United Kingdom). My primary research focus is the study of the impact of climate change on health, and the assessment of the resilience of societies to environmental exposures under changing climate conditions.

Anna Deluca

I have a PhD in applied mathematics from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, and I was a visiting researcher at the Max Planck Institute and the Imperial College London. I am an expert in atmospheric convection and precipitation, climate models, time series analysis, complex systems, extreme events and probabilistic forecasting.

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.

Ramon Requena

I am studying the role of climate on child neurodevelopment in Spain, within the framework of a cohort study of the INMA project. The underlying hypothesis is that climate variability affects the neurological development of children, from pregnancy to childhood.
