SOLVE-CHD Researcher Spotlight September
Dr Georgia Chaseling PhD BESS (Honours)
SOLVE-CHD Postdoctoral Research Fellow, The University of Sydney
Dr Georgia Chaseling is a cardiovascular and thermal physiologist. She has over seven years of experience investigating the influence of heat and exercise on thermal, cardiovascular, and perceptual outcomes amongst clinical populations, such as people with cardiovascular disease, multiple sclerosis, and pregnant women and spinal cord injuries. She completed her PhD at the University of Sydney in 2018 and has recently returned to Australia after completing her postdoctoral studies at the Montreal Heart Institute, Canada, working with coronary artery disease patients. Dr Chaseling has an interest in researching the negative impacts of environmental extremes on adverse cardiovascular outcomes for people with cardiovascular disease and developing sustainable and effective measures to mitigate health issues that are aggravated by climate change. Her research also focuses on building community resilience to nvironmental extremes by integrating scientific, environmental, and clinical data that determine a person’s heat health risk and working to improve and individualise public health guidelines for vulnerable populations.
