Studying at Cambridge

 

Keynote Speakers

David KeithDavid Keith

David Keith divides his time between Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he is Gordon McKay Professor of Applied Physics in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and Professor of Public Policy in the Harvard Kennedy School; and Calgary, where he helps lead a company developing technology to capture of CO2 from ambient air.

 

 

Phil Rasch

Philip Rasch

Philip Rasch serves as the Chief Scientist for Climate Science at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, a US Department of Energy Office of Science research laboratory and is an Affiliate Professor in the Department of Atmospheric Science at the University of WashingtonHe is internationally known for his work in general circulation, atmospheric chemistry, and climate modelling.



Ken Caldeira

Ken Caldeira

Ken Caldeira is a climate scientist working for the Carnegie Institution Department of Global Ecology at Stanford University. He investigates issues related to climate, carbon, and energy systems. His primary tools are climate and the carbon cycle models, although he does field work related to ocean acidification.


 

 

Lynn Russell

Lynn Russell

Lynn Russell is a Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography of the University of California, San Diego. Her research interests are in aerosol composition, aerosol-cloud interactions, and aerosol evolution in the troposphere.

 

 

 

David Mackay

David MacKay FRS

David MacKay is the Regius Professor of Engineering at the University of Cambridge, and from 2009 to 2014 acted as the Chief Scientific Advisor to the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change. He is also well-known as the author of 'Sustainable Energy - Without the Hot Air', which aims to help people understand the numbers around sustainable energy.

 

 

Matthew WatsonMatthew Watson

Matthew Watson is a Reader in Natural Hazards at the University of Bristol and Principal Investigator of the Stratospheric Particle Injection for Climate Engineering (SPICE) Project. His research involves inversion of remotely-sensed data to retrieve physical parameters of volcanic plumes and clouds over several spatial scales, using both ground- and satellite-based techniques.

 

 

Tom Ackermann

 Thomas Ackerman

Tom Ackerman is the Director of the Joint Institute for the study of Atmosphere and Ocean and Professor in Atmospheric Science at the University of Washington. His research includes studies of the climate influence of volcanic eruptions and asteroid collisions, the impact of clouds on earth climate, and the use of ground-based and satellite observations to study clouds and climate.

 

 

Duncan McLaren

Duncan McLaren

Duncan McLaren is a part time PhD student at Lancaster, UK. Alongside his PhD studies, on the justice implications of geoengineering, he consults and advises in a range of sustainable development, energy and climate change issues. He was previously Chief Executive of Friends of the Earth Scotland. Amongst other roles he is a member of the Integrated Assessment of Geoengineering Potential project advisory group; and of the UK Government’s Energy Research Partnership.
