Nick will talk about using data to link environmental exposures and human health outcomes in the new age of increasing digitisation.

Dr Nick Osborne is associate professor of environmental epidemiology at UQ School of Public Health. He is an environmental epidemiologist and toxicologist with research interests in using environmental epidemiology to examine aetiology and pathological pathways of disease. He has worked on a range of projects examining environmental exposures and health outcomes including exposure to pollen, mould, low levels of chemicals, pesticide and cyanotoxins.  He also has experience examining how exposure to natural environments may increase health and wellbeing (green/bluespace and solar irradiance and vitamin D). He is currently working on projects using molecular approaches to predict grass pollen-related health outcomes in the UK and examining CKD in Sri Lanka and its relationship to pesticides and/or the water:heat stress nexus. He completed his PhD at the then named National Research Centre for Environmental Toxicology and the School of Preventive Medicine, UQ.
