Personal profile

Research interests

All aspects of applying mathematical and computational methods to Earth Science. In the last 2 decades my work has concentrated on asking whether the Earth is Special which has led, in turn, to a particular interest in the long-term evolution of the Earth-Moon system. However, my focus is now moving towards the Energy Transition and how Earth Science can assist in making this as smooth and rapid as possible (e.g. through subsurface energy storage).

Expertise related to UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. This person’s work contributes towards the following SDG(s):

  • SDG 3 - Good Health and Well-being
