An increasing body of literature suggests that extreme weather events are on the rise, and will become more frequent, more intense and longer lasting in response to our changing climate. Leveraging data from multiple large remote sensing, climate, and health datasets, the presentation will focus on how such extreme events and the associated changes in ecosystem, including alteration in plant phenology are affecting human health at both local and national scale.
Dr. Amir Sapkota is an Associate Professor at the University of Maryland School of Public Health. He is an exposure scientist and environmental epidemiologist.
