Research interests lie also in the study of behavioural and environmental aspects of health. From the behavioural perspective, the main focus is over the use of behavioural enhancement and the evaluation of such methodologies, with a particular focus on education and capacity building, and nudging strategies; as well as the effectiveness and efficiency of such measures. The role of the environment, particularly that of natural and seminatural environments over health and its role in preventing potential harms caused by climate change occupies the environmental side of the research.
Broad research specialisms:
His research has been focused on the analysis of health impacts of environmental and behavioural factors. On the environmental perspective, research has been directed towards adaptation to climate change, particularly Ecosystem-based Adaptation measures. On the behavioural side, research has focus on the promotion of healthy eating habits. Analyses for this research have been based in the use of econometric and statistical approaches, used in order to develop metanalyses of the existing literature.
