Lunchtime Lecture: Shaping Sustainable and Healthy Cities using Smartphone Technology

Details

Dr Audrey de Nazelle, Lecturer at ICL, will look at what desirable urban policies could promote healthy and sustainable behaviours and how smart phones may help both influencing these behaviours and creating support for ambitious policies.

Speaker: Audrey de Nazelle joined the Centre for Environmental Policy, Imperial College London, in 2012 as a lecturer in air pollution management. She is an expert in risk assessment and exposure science. Her research is at the intersection of environmental sciences, health behaviour, transportation, and urban planning. Her work aims at guiding decision makers towards health-promoting built environments and policies. It involves novel and holistic approaches to assessing behavioral, environmental and health impacts of urban plans and policies.  Dr de Nazelle was named one of the “50 Most Influential Female Scholars” by SuperScholar, an organization that aims to help match prospective students to degree programmes.  Dr de Nazelle was the PI for the Behavioural Change for Urban Sustainability (BeCUS) study. She is the PI for the follow-up study Enhancing the Plume Labs App and Monitor for Research and Policy (E-Plume), conducted in partnership with Plume Labs, to understand how mobile apps and monitors may be used to engage citizens into healthier and more sustainable behaviors. She is also a collaborator in the EPSRC-funded project Managing Air for Green Inner Cities (MAGIC), led by Cambridge University.
