Alexander More's research focuses on the impact of climate change on population and ecosystem health and the economy. By using ultra-high-resolution climatic, epidemiological, ecological and archeoscientific records, More brings recent drastic environmental changes into a broader perspective, one that permits stark comparisons between current and past trends in temperature, pollution, pandemic disease, and extreme weather, all of which directly impact food production, human health, economic prosperity, and political stability. He is author of several landmark studies of the impact of climate on pandemics and pollution, and an active contributor to the fields of environmental health and planetary health. He currently holds an appointment in the Initiative for the Science of the Human Past at Harvard University, and is also Assistant Research Professor at the Climate Change Institute (University of Maine) and Associate Professor of Environmental Health at Long Island University in New York City.
