About me

Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Exeter, working with Prof. Geoff Vallis. You can view my CV here.

My research is split into three main streams:

  • Why does it warm more at the poles? Review and paper.
  • Do we understand past warm climates such as the Eocene? Paper and pre-print.
  • What are the physical risks and trade-offs of solar geoengineering? Paper 1 and paper 2, and more to come.

Carbon Brief guest post on Arctic Amplification.
