Oliver Andrews

Affiliate Member of the Tyndall Centre

Lecturer at the University of Bristol



I completed my PhD in 2014 at the University of East Anglia using global and regional biogeochemical models to investigate the impacts of climate change on ocean oxygen.  After this I worked for 3 years as a Senior Research Associate in the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, focusing variously on ocean model development and evaluation, marine production of greenhouse gases, and the impacts of climate change on population health.  I am now a Lecturer in Biogeochemistry in the School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol, and Affiliate Member of the Tyndall Centre.
