Professor of Biosphere-Atmosphere Interactions, University of Leeds

Dominick is Professor of Biopshere-Atmosphere Intearctions at the University of Leeds.

He was awarded a Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) Advanced Fellow between 2009 and 2014, and in 2016, was awarded a Philip Leverhulme Award. Dominick currently holds a European Research Council Consolidator Fellowship (2018-2023) to study the impacts of tropical deforestation on regional climate.
