Meet our students

SCENARIO has hosted over 120 students since 2014: their names and projects are listed below. 33 students have completed their PhDs and are now working in academia, government, and the private and public sectors, in the UK and abroad.

SCENARIO students share a common interest in improving scientific understanding to address today’s and tomorrow’s environmental challenges, including climate change, air and water pollution, and biodiversity loss. Our students come from diverse backgrounds, having first degrees and/or Masters degrees in Physics, Maths, Chemistry, Biology, Physical Geography, Meteorology, and Environmental Sciences.

SCENARIO students come from the UK, Europe, and beyond. Their PhD projects span many fascinating aspects of the sciences of the environment, from the atmosphere and ocean to space weather, from earthworms to elephants.
