Chin Yang Shapland

I am a Research Fellow at the MRC Integrative Epidemiology Unit. My research interest is in the relationship of climate change on human health. To bridge the gap between the two research fields, I started collaborating with colleagues in Bristol Climate Dynamics Group in 2023. Within the group, I have been investigating the impacts of extreme temperatures on human mortality and hospitalisation, and predicting future heat-related mortality using heatwave attribution data.

My expertise is in Bayesian approaches and causal inference, therefore aiming to infer causality between climate change and human health with these statistical methods.
