Ph.D. candidate at University of Bern


Evan is a visiting doctoral student in the Climate Change and Health Concentration faculty at the Yale School of Public Health. Originally he pursues a PhD in “Climate Change Adaptation and Future Health Impacts” at the Institute of Social and Preventive Medicine and the Oeschger Center for Climate Change Research as part of the University of Bern, Switzerland. Thus far, Evan`s work has aimed to understand the long term temperature-mortality trends and to identify drivers of temperature-related vulnerability factors. At Yale, Evan hopes to acquire the skillset to provide projections on climate change impacts under various Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs), Shared Socioeconomic Pathways (SSPs) and adaptation measures, by applying the wealth of epidemiological knowledge available at Yale University. Ultimately, the aim of the PhD is to bridge the gap between epidemiology, public health and climate sciences.
