I began working with DeSmog UK as Deputy Editor in October 2016, shortly after the UK voted to leave the EU, and helped to expand DeSmog's coverage of the country’s ever-changing political scene. In recent years, DeSmog has published its investigations with a range of mainstream media partners including the Guardian, Independent, ITV, and Channel 4 in the UK, and La Marea and Interferencia elsewhere.
I previously worked as an Associate Editor for Nature Climate Change, and writer for Carbon Brief. He became DeSmog UK's third Editor in October 2017. I have experience covering all facets of the UK’s energy and climate change debate, from fact-checking denier positions to reporting on the government’s role in international negotiations.
Born in Cambridge, UK, I studied at the University of Bristol. In 2012, I completed my PhD on political communication strategies in US Congressional climate change debates, which won the Hilary Hartley prize as the best thesis in my department’s graduating class.
