Jennifer Cole

Lecturer in Global and Planetary Health

Themes: Reducing health inequalities, Greener futures, Thriving communities

Expertise: Biological anthropology, planetary health, critical health geopolitics, global health

My work is highly interdisciplinary across the fields of human, global, planetary, eco and one health, focusing how environments impact on human health across the lifecourse. (Un)health environments can be natural environments, urban environments, political ecologies or historical legacies of colonialism, repression or conflict.

My experience includes over a decade working at the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies, a policy think tank, and as Public Health Advisor to the Rockefeller Economic Council on Planetary Health at the Oxford Martin School, Oxford University. I am a member of the Planetary Health Alliance and a World Health Organization accredited Infodemic Manager.
