I am now an associate research fellow at the University of Exeter. Please go to my webpage there for up-to-date information. These Reading pages relate to my PhD project.
My project aimed to investigate some of the potential impacts of geoengineering with stratospheric sulphate aerosols. This is a controversial field and so I have produced an ethics statement which outlines how I believe geoengineering research should be conducted. I focused on the effects of the enhanced sulphate layer on the dynamics of the stratosphere and how these effects could be communicated to the troposphere. I am also interested in the 'human' aspects of climate change - impacts, policy and governance - although this was not part of the scope of my project.
