Carbon Monoxide: Source and Sinks

A PhD student affiliated with the Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet Doctoral Training Partnership at the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and the Environment. His project is supervised by Heather Graven and involves using atmospheric modelling on both regional and global scales to investigate the sources and sinks of Carbon Monoxide.

Before joining Imperial College, Liam completed his master's degree at the University of Nottingham where he achieved a 1st in MSci Physics with Theoretic Astrophysics with his final year project focusing on the use of large-scale statistics to help understand the dynamics of galaxies in the early universe.

During his time at Nottingham, he also completed a summer project under the supervision of Dr Simon Dye, using machine learning methods to determine the size and shape of gravitationally lensed galaxies. His work contributed to the improvement of some pre-existing models, as well as the development of new models that will allow us to gain a better understanding of the way galaxies evolve in the early universe.
