Postgraduate Research: PhD Projects

I will be advertising later in October a range of PhD projects for September 2020 entry at the University of Edinburgh:

  • Climate and the carbon cycle: identifying responses and impacts using satellite remote sensing and machine learning (with UC Berkeley)
  • Using a global 3-D planetary model to study the atmosphere of the early Earth as an analogue for Earth-like exoplanets (with University College London)
  • What is the contribution of tropical African wetlands to the atmospheric CH4 budget? (with UK Met Office)

I am also a co-supervisor on projects available elsewhere for September 2020 entry:

University of East Anglia: What can atmospheric measurements tell us about how the Atlantic Ocean is responding to climate change? (supervised by Professor Manning and Dr Pickers)


In general, mathematically able applicants are particularly encouraged to apply. 

More information about the postgraduate programme in the School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh can be found on School web site.

Undergraduate Research

I supervise UG projects in GeoSciences and Physics & Astronomy. I generally favour mathematically-able students. Also happy to supervise summer projects.
