2017 teaching team update

We are delighted to introduce a new member of the teaching team for this year. Pete Walton is that rare and wonderful combination of high school teacher AND academic researcher. This is what it says on the ECI website about him:

"Pete is a Knowledge Exchange Research Fellow based in the UKCIP [UK Climate Impacts Programme], where he is responsible for developing and supporting knowledge exchange opportunities with external stakeholders on behalf of the Oxford Climate Research Network. Pete’s academic and professional career combines both Climate Change and Education, providing him with the expertise in adaptation and climate change impacts and the skills to communicate the practical implications of such impacts to a wide range of audiences. Prior to his current post, Pete was Training Officer for UKCIP. This involved developing a range of learning (and e-learning) resources and designing and developing innovative approaches to training, knowledge exchange and stakeholder dialogue."

Pete is also lovely, really friendly, and very enthusiastic about meeting our 2017 LIGC students. You have to love someone who can publish an article called Using a Game to Engage Stakeholders in Extreme Event Attribution Science in a Journal called International Journal of Disaster Risk Science!
