FAME Lab, Πανεπιστήμιο Θεσσαλίας
Andreas Flouris is an Associate Professor at the University of Thessaly and an Adjunct Professor at the University of Ottawa. He is the Founder and Director of FAME Lab, a research unit of 15 senior researchers investigating the impact of environmental factors on health and performance.
Andreas imagines a world in which the vast majority of people understand how the environment impacts their life and plan their goals and activities in harmonious accordance with the long-term well-being of humanity. His goal is to get closer to that, to stand as a beacon that points towards that, and to offer the tools he can and inspire others to help him build tools to get to that world. Understanding and addressing the drivers of poor outcomes in health and performance will accelerate improvements in quality of life for all people – sustainably and justly.
Andreas has participated in many international projects in the EU and North America (>18M euro in the past 9 years) and has published widely on the impacts of environmental factors. Also, he is an Expert Consultant providing input for guidelines and policy pertaining to the health effects of environmental factors for international organizations (World Health Organisation, United Nations, European Commission, NASA, and others).
