I am a third-year PhD student in the School of Earth and Environment researching the climate of the Pliocene epoch (~3 million years ago) and its relevance to future climate change and the 1.5°C warmer world. I am part of the Earth Surface Science Institute and the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science, and funded by the NERC Panorama DTP.
I am also involved in the third phase of the Pliocene Modelling Intercomparison Project (PlioMIP3).
Alongside my PhD, I am a Communications and Engagement Intern at the Priestley Centre for Climate Futures. As part of my internship, I produced the ‘Ask A Climate Researcher’ series and continue to run climate engagement events at the University.
My research considers the climate of the Pliocene epoch and what we can learn about the long-term effects of CO2 at ~400 ppmv with reference to future climate change and the 1.5°C warmer world.
