Dr Niall Gandy


I am a Palaeo-Climatologist and Glaciologist, using coupled numerical Climate-Ice Sheet models to explore palaeo-climate ice sheet interactions. My work is part of Lauren Gregoire’s UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship “SMB-Gen”.

I also completed my PhD at the University of Leeds in 2020, using the BISICLES ice sheet models to simulations the British-Irish Ice Sheet. My thesis was title “The Role of Ice Streams in the Demise of the British-Irish Ice Sheet”. Prior to my PhD, I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Sheffield and remained for an MSc in Polar and Alpine Change. My MSc dissertation mapped glacial landforms in the Firth of Forth, and suggested the ice dynamics of the British-Irish Ice Sheet in the area.
