Angus Ferraro

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 PhD was supervised by Dr. Andrew Charlton Perez and Prof. Ellie Highwood.

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.
