Bethan Harris

PhD Student

"Effect of supervolcanoes on climate"

Bethan successfully gained her thesis in 2009, worked in the group on the ADIENT project for 1 year and moved to work as a researcher on climate related programmes at the BBC.

Madhavi Karumudi

PDRA

Madhavi was co-ordinator for DIAC-UKAAN and also investigated aerosol characteristics and global atmospheric electrical activity at Reading using measurements of the atmospheric electric field and aerosol mass concentration.

Megan Northway

PDRA

Megan worked on the ADIENT project which is quantifying aerosol optical properties around the UK and across EUROPE. She now lives in Japan with her family.

Steve Rumbold

PDRA

Steve worked on the APPRAISE project developing and tested a benchmark radiative transfer model for the UK Atmospheric Aerosol community. He now works at the Met Office in Exeter.

Nicola Stuber

PDRA

Nicola worked on the EU FP6 project, QUANTIFY, using the Unified Model to look at the climate effect of aerosols. She was also a member of the Radiation and Climate Processes group. Nicola left in 2010 for new adventures!
