Dr Steven Turnock


I completed my PhD at the University of Leeds in 2016 on the recent changes in aerosols and their effect on climate over the latter half of the 20th Century. Since completion I have been working as a research scientist within the Met Office Hadley Centre on air quality-cliamte interactions. I am now a member of the Leeds University Met Office Strategic research group (LUMOS).
