Biography

I am a member of the Climate Change and Impacts Research Group. I am also part of the Integrated Assessment of Geoengineering Project and am running the Met Office Unified Model and analysing its output to understand the effectiveness and side effects of a number of geoengineering options.

I worked as a software engineer from 1990-2006 before giving this up to return to university to study climate change. I obtained my PhD "Quantifying zonal patterns of climate feedbacks and their role in polar amplification" in 2012 and am now a research fellow.
