Steve Arnold

Steve’s research focuses on the processing and transport of trace gases and aerosols in the atmosphere, and their interactions with the Earth’s climate system, biopshere and society. This research is key to improving our ability to understand and predict changes in present-day and future climate, and risks to human health and ecosystems. Steve uses numerical […]

Giulio Mattioli

Dr. Giulio Mattioli researches in the interdisciplinary area of Transport Studies. His research examines the multiple ways in which transport systems are locked into high (and increasing) levels of energy consumption and carbon emissions. He is specifically interested in developing a comprehensive understanding of car dependence, its social drivers and consequences, notably in terms of […]

Astrid Kause

Astrid studies human judgements and decisions related to climate change. This includes how individuals perceive climate change – in particular the factors shaping their understanding of (uncertain) scientific evidence.  She also explores mechanisms of pro-environmental behaviours. Inspired by the ecological rationality-framework from the field of decision sciences, Astrid’s research goal is to improve the intuitive design of decision environments: […]
