Dom is Professor of Climate Change and Society at the University of Sussex.  Originally focusing on the science and modelling of climate change his work encompasses studies of impact, vulnerability, adaptation, and climate resilience.  In particular his recent research has explored the nexus of environmental change and migration and the development of methodologies including combining agent based modelling with Q methodology  to explore the intersection of the natural and social sciences.  Recognition of his profile in this field is shown by invited participations in expert group meetings run by various agencies of the United Nations, UK government and International Organisation of Migration. Dominic’s other major research interest include humanitarian actions where he has been working to develop tools to enhance the use of climate information within decision-making with particular regard to the global south. Dominic is also currently a visiting scientist at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD).
