Senior Research Associate in Meteorology, University of Bristol

Dr. Alex Farnsworth is a senior research scientist and visitng professor. His main focus centers on investigating past and future climate change and the impact of changing greenhouse gas concentrations and tectonic shifts on the evolution of global temperature, and more specifically, monsoon systems by using and modifying climate models.

His PhD looked into the dynamics of central African tropical meteorology and climatology, specifically focussing upon rainfall dynamics and variability at the University of Reading, Meteorology department.

He also enjoys taking a more conceptual approach using climate models to better understand their behaviour for exoplanets and fantasy worlds, such as Arrakis (Dune) or Westeros (Game of Thrones).
