I am a PhD candidate based at the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and the Environment, and am part of the 5th cohort of the 'Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet' (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership, funded by NERC. My research focuses on the representation of CCS and CDR in integrated assessment models (IAMs), criticising and improving this representation.
Tackling climate change will require a rapid transition to a net-zero economy. There remains considerable uncertainty about the best path by which to achieve this transformational goal. IAMs have been used to explore the diversity of mitigation pathways and provide evidence on their relative strengths and weaknesses.
I am interested in working in UK climate policy, and as part of my PhD have worked closely with the Climate Change Committee (CCC) on the Net Zero and Sixth Carbon Budget reports, WWF on an ambitious and feasible NDC for the UK, and the All-Party Parliamentary Climate Change Group (APPCCG) on tracking UK climate policy development in the run-up to COP26.
