Thesis Title

Observed humidity and hospital morbidity in northern Australia


James is interested in how we identify dangerously hot days. His PhD, which commenced in 2014, compares a number of heat stress indices to see how well they can predict indicators of public health in Australian cities. He plans to use this work to see how sensitive projections of Australian climate change health impacts are to the choice of heat stress index.
