Dr. Nicolás Borchers Arriagada
Nicolás Borchers Arriagada is a Sohn Hearts and Minds Research Fellow and a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Menzies Institute for Medical Research at UTAS. He is multidisciplinary data scientist and industrial engineer, specialised in environmental and medical sciences. His work intersects modelling, public health, health economics, bushfire management, and more broadly risks of climate related and extreme weather events. During his PhD he assessed the health burden of bushfire smoke in Australia and is currently working on novel methods to improve and refine population exposure estimates to wood heater smoke and landscape fire smoke PM2.5, assess the health burden of different climate related extreme events, and on using health economic and visualisation techniques to better communicate policy-related research.
