Alastair Brown

Editor-in-Chief, Lancet Planetary Health

United Kingdom

Editor-In-Chief of the Lancet Planetary Health with 13 years experience editing thematic-interdisciplinary journals at Nature and The Lancet. Before that I worked in a policy-facing role at the UK Climate Impacts Programme at Oxford University, engaging with willing branches of government and the private sector on ways to adapt to unavoidable climate changes. I studied Environmental Science followed by a Masters in Global Environmental Change, both at the University of Plymouth (UK). My doctoral and postdoctoral research at the University of Southampton (UK) was in the field of palaeoclimatology. I have broad interests in the intersections of people and planet and the pressing challenges these pose.

I sit on the EASE Environment and Sustainability Committee.
