Junior Investigator Award for projects at Karolinska Institutet aimed at achieving the UN sustainable development goals (2022-2023)

Extreme temperatures, adverse health effects and future scenarios.

This project aims to uncover how societal processes influence adaptation to non-optimal and extreme temperatures leveraging historical data and building future scenarios. This will support practitioners and stakeholders in developing recommendations and adaptation strategies. This award will contribute to data acquisition and will be carried out in collaboration with the Center for Natural Hazards and Disaster Science (CNDS) and Uppsala University.

Novel risk factors for cardiovascular disease during pregnancy in whole populations of the UK

This project aims to unravel novel risk factors for cardiovascular disease during pregnancy leveraging the unique opportunity provided by population-based data from the UK such as the recently established CVD-COVID-UK / COVID-IMPACT. In particular, the project focuses on the effect of COVID-19 infection and air temperatures on adverse pregnancy outcomes looking at past trends and future scenarios in collaboration with partners in the UK.

Adapting to temperature extremes in a changing climate: Past trends and future scenarios

Taking Sweden as a case-in-point, this project aims to address the following questions, of key relevance for ensuring a socially just adaptation to future temperatures: (1) which groups are most vulnerable to non-optimal and extreme temperatures? (2) what is the interplay between environmental drivers, societal processes, adaptation strategies and the resulting health impacts? and (3) how can adaptation strategies mitigate the health impacts of plausible future temperatures?
