About me

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

My research is mainly focused on solar geoengineering (Paper 1, paper 2, and more in preparation).

I have also done work on the polar amplification of warming (Review and paper) and understanding past warm climates such as the Eocene (Paper 1 and Paper 2).

Solar Climate Intervention Virtual Symposia. If you want to present your solar climate intervention science research, please get in touch!
