Alexander More is a historian whose recent research focuses on the impact of climate change on population health and the economy. By using both climate science and historical records, More brings recent drastic changes into a broader perspective, one that permits stark comparisons between current and historical trends in temperature, pollution, pandemic disease, and extreme weather, all of which directly impact food production, human health, economic prosperity, and political stability. He is author of a landmark study of pre-modern climate and pollution and an active contributor to the field of planetary health. More currently holds a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of History at Harvard University, under the Initiative for the Science of the Human Past, and at the Climate Change Institute (University of Maine), where he leads a project on the impact of climate change on population health and the economy in the last millennium. In addition to academic journals, his work has been featured in The Guardian, Smithsonian Magazine, Der Spiegel, Archaeology Magazine, Süddeutsche Zeitung, The Daily Mail, Frankfurter Allgemein, Atlas Obscura, Eos, Science et vie, and many other print and online publications (see media page).
