Her DPhil thesis is focused on exploring the impact of global heating/climate change on at-risk population and healthcare facilities in low- and middle-income countries with tropical and subtropical climate.
The broader goals of this project are to analyse the climate change policies in place to protect the hospitals and health workforce from climate shocks, assess the effects of extreme weather risks on the infrastructure, human resources and operation of at-risk hospitals, and identify the actions that could be taken to mitigate the impacts of extreme weather events; thus, contributing towards building a climate-resilient health system in affected/at-risk countries.
