Aleš Urban joins our team

Aleš finished his PhD in Physical Geography at the Charles University in Prague, being supervised by Dr. Jan Kyselý. Since 2010, Aleš has been a member of the Department of Climatology, Institute of Atmospheric Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences. In his research, Aleš focuses on modelling of relationships between climate and human health in various aspects. These include research of human thermal comfort under different urban settings (human biometeorology) and statistical analysis of long-term relationships between climate variability and human mortality and morbidity (environmental epidemiology). Aleš has gained rich international experience during his research stays at the Humboldt University of Berlin (2014, 2015) and the Arizona State University (2017) and he has established successful cooperation with leading experts in the field. The results of his research have been published in some top journals in the field such as Science of the Total Environment and Environmental Research Letters.
