OxCPF is happy to announce that the following experts are joining its advisory board:
- Alice Evatt is a DPhil Candidate at Oxford University, specialising in climate change ethics, and a member of the Oxford Climate Crisis Thinking Network. She works on topics ranging from the value of nature amidst the climate and ecological crisis, to the climate responsibility of major agribusinesses.
- Tristram Walsh is the President of the award-winning Oxford Climate Society. As an MPhys student at the University of Oxford he studies both atmospheric physics and theoretical physics, and conducts research into adapative mitigatation pathways using climate models under Myles Allen. In the past, he has done research on the extreme weather attribution under Fredi Otto. He says:
‘Climate change is fundamentally a non-partisan problem, and any attempt to bring together young and future politicians from across the political spectrum in a meaningful way is necessary for equitable policies to be enacted. After talking with the founder during the early stages of dreaming up OxCPF, I’m convinced that the project is important, promising, and in great hands, and I look forward to supporting and collaborating towards it’s progress in any way I can over the coming months.’
- Thomas Hornigold is a DPhil student in Atmospheric Physics at the University of Oxford, where he studies future climate change scenarios including the potential applications of solar geoengineering and negative emissions. In addition to this, he is a keen science communicator, writing on issues of climate, energy, machine learning and technology in general for Singularity Hub, as well as hosting a podcast on physics and technology – Physical Attraction.
Alice, Tristram and Thomas will inform the Forum’s decision making with their valuable expert advice on climate change issues.
