Dr Peter Walton is working at the University of Oxford researching and supporting stakeholder engagement with climate change adaptation science, with a particular focus on the emerging science of extreme weather event attribution. This follows the completion of his doctoral thesis that examines how climate science can more successfully be communicated to the public using online technologies.
Dr Walton is a qualified teacher with 20 years’ experience teaching at school and university level. His research has provided an opportunity to link his background as an environmental geographer with an interest in the role of technologies as tools for engagement.
