My research focuses on the impacts of climate change on human health, especially the impacts of heat and other extreme weather events that will become more frequent and more severe as our climate changes.
Ivan Hanigan: Environmental scientist and database managerI am a multidisciplinary data manager and analyst. I have primarily worked in Environmental Epidemiology where I have honed my skills in manipulation of large databases and multivariate regression modelling.
