Our aim is to attain new standards of excellence in environmental science research training and deliver a transformative inter-disciplinary experience for PhD students.
Our students are trained at 8 world-leading research institutions. These span very diverse areas of environmental science research, ranging from assessing contemporary environmental challenges to exploring complex questions about the evolution of planet Earth. To-date the London NERC DTP has funded over 200 PhD students.
I have always been fascinated by how we can observe the changes on the Earth through our eyes in the sky – the many hundreds of satellites which daily orbit our Earth. So, I recently undertook the NERC Undergraduate Research Experience Placement (virtually!) at the Natural History Museum with supervisors Peter Grindrod and Joel Davis… Read More ›
DTP student, Megan McGrory’s (Cohort 4) journal article about her research on the refractive index of polystyrene beads as a function of temperature was published, open access, this year (2020) in Environmental Pollution. Megan demonstrated a new contact-less technique for determining the refractive index of solid aerosol particles as a function of wavelength and temperature… Read More ›
