Dr. Andrea Dittus

Senior Research Scientist (NCAS)

Research Interests:

I am a NERC Independent Research Fellow working on understanding changes in climate and climate variability in a net-zero world.

Interested in:

  • Global climate variability and change
  • Climate impacts of stabilising global temperatures at global warming levels (GWLs)
  • Historical and future changes in climate extremes
  • Role of anthropogenic aerosol in historical climate variability

Research Projects:

  • Towards climate stabilisation: understanding changes in climate, climate variability, and impacts (NERC IRF)

Previous Research Projects:

  • GloSAT Project
  • Robust Projections of Real-World Climate Change (REAL Projections)
  • DOVE - Decadal Ocean Variability and East Asia
  • Securing Multidisciplinary UndeRstanding and Prediction of Hiatus and Surge events (SMURPHS)
