Dr Oscar Brousse profile picture
  • Research Fellow in Urban Meteorology and Environmental Modelling
  • Bartlett School Env, Energy & Resources
  • Faculty of the Built Environment
Dr. Oscar Brousse joined the UCL in September 2020 to work  as a research fellow on the HEROIC project funded by Wellcome Trust. His training as a geographer specialized in urban climate studies and modelling permitted him to work in a variety of research environments. In particular, Oscar worked at the CIEMAT in Spain, the Purdue University in the USA, and the KU Leuven in Belgium. His research is published in peer-reviewed international journals, mostly focusing on environmental and climate sciences. Oscar speaks French, English, Spanish, and a bit of German and Dutch.
Research Summary
Oscar Brousse is a post-doctoral research fellow at the IEDE working on the impact of urban heat on urban health under the Health and Economic impacts of Reducing Overheating in Cities (HEROIC) project led by Clare Heaviside. He recently finished his PhD in geography at the KU Leuven in Belgium, where he focused his research on the effects of urban climates on malaria in Sub-Saharan Africa. This super region, often neglected in urban climate studies, is where Oscar likes to focus his research. He has a keen interest in new technologies and citizen science to overcome data scarcity in major cities of the world and study the impacts of their urban climates. His efforts made use of satellite remote sensing techniques as well as urban climate models, in particular. He is also a main contributor to the WUDAPT project (http://wudapt.org).
