Research interests

Andy Morse is Professor of Climate Impacts in the School of Environmental Sciences, University of Liverpool, U.K. 

His Ph.D. is in Atmospheric Physics from the University of Manchester, he works on the impacts of climate variability and climate change on human and animal health.  He is best known for his work at seasonal scales using ensemble predictions of seasonal climate variability on vector bone diseases.

He has worked with a range of infectious diseases including malaria, Rift Valley fever, dengue and Zika. Much of his work has been focussed on sub-Saharan Africa.  Andy also works on longer climate change impacts on infectious disease using outputs from a range of global climate models, using probabilistic approaches to bound the uncertainties in projections.

He has over 100 journal publications and was co-awarded the 2006 World Meteorological Organisation’s Norbert Gerbier-MUMM International award for the work on integrating impacts models within seasonal ensemble forecasting systems.
