About

I am Research Fellow in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Exeter. I work on observational constraints on climate feedback processes. I completed my PhD at the University of Reading looking at stratospheric heating perturbations resulting from geoengineering with stratospheric aerosols. I am interested in how geoengineering aerosols affect the stratospheric dynamics and how these effects might be communicated to the troposphere. Geoengineering research is tremendously important lest it be implemented without full knowledge of the risks. I see the climate change problem as part of the wider problem of the sustainability of human societies, and am interested in approaches to sustainability as a whole.
