Tim is responsible for the day-to-day management and coordination of the programme.
He has a broad interest in the potential of proposed geoengineering techniques as a response to climate change, and in the governance issues associated with them.
He has investigated in detail one potential geoengineering technique, that of adding alkalinity to the ocean as a way of enhancing its capacity to act as a carbon sink and to counteract the effects of ocean acidification. He is also interested in how proper governance can ensure that any research in this field is undertaken in a responsible way.
Tim is one of the Authors of The Oxford Principles.
