Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Law
  • Social science
  • China

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Disaster risk reduction, Vulnerability, Climate change, Environmental resource management and Environmental planning. His Disaster risk reduction research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Indigenous, Traditional knowledge, Natural hazard, Hazard and Public relations. His Vulnerability research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Law, Risk management, Livelihood and Operations research.

His research in Climate change intersects with topics in Global health and Sustainable development. His research integrates issues of Commission and Health policy in his study of Global health. His Environmental planning research incorporates themes from Multidisciplinary approach, Sustainability and Environmental health.

His most cited work include:

  • Health and climate change: policy responses to protect public health (757 citations)
  • The Lancet Countdown on health and climate change: from 25 years of inaction to a global transformation for public health (414 citations)
  • An Analysis of the Causes and Circumstances of Flood Disaster Deaths (331 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of investigation include Climate change, Disaster risk reduction, Environmental planning, Vulnerability and Environmental resource management. His work focuses on many connections between Climate change and other disciplines, such as Livelihood, that overlap with his field of interest in Socioeconomics. His work in Disaster risk reduction addresses subjects such as Context, which are connected to disciplines such as Diplomacy.

The concepts of his Environmental planning study are interwoven with issues in Climate change adaptation and Flood myth. His Vulnerability research incorporates elements of Hazard, Risk management, Psychological resilience and Operations research. The concepts of his Environmental resource management study are interwoven with issues in Sustainability and Perception.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Climate change (38.94%)
  • Disaster risk reduction (36.97%)
  • Environmental planning (26.33%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2017-2021)?

  • Disaster risk reduction (36.97%)
  • Climate change (38.94%)
  • Vulnerability (29.13%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Ilan Kelman mainly investigates Disaster risk reduction, Climate change, Vulnerability, Environmental planning and Public relations. His Disaster risk reduction study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Natural hazard, Corporate governance, Forgetting, Sustainable development and Preparedness. Ilan Kelman has researched Climate change in several fields, including Context and Refugee.

The Vulnerability study combines topics in areas such as Hazard, Economy, Public health, Sustainability and Socioeconomics. His study in Sustainability is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Diversity and Environmental resource management. His research investigates the connection with Environmental planning and areas like Climate change adaptation which intersect with concerns in Climate change mitigation.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • The 2019 report of The Lancet Countdown on health and climate change: ensuring that the health of a child born today is not defined by a changing climate (328 citations)
  • The 2018 report of the Lancet Countdown on health and climate change: shaping the health of nations for centuries to come (300 citations)
  • The UCL–Lancet Commission on Migration and Health: the health of a world on the move (211 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Law
  • Social science
  • China

His primary areas of study are Vulnerability, Disaster risk reduction, Climate change, Hazard and Sustainability. His Vulnerability research integrates issues from Psychological resilience and Public health. Disaster risk reduction is a subfield of Environmental planning that he explores.

Environmental planning connects with themes related to Environmental resource management in his study. When carried out as part of a general Climate change research project, his work on Small Island Developing States is frequently linked to work in Countdown and Work, therefore connecting diverse disciplines of study. His Hazard research includes elements of Indigenous and Livestock.
