I’m Matthew Brady, a PhD student in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Cambridge. My research focuses on using water isotopes to deconvolve complex climate histories through experiments and novel records. Currently, I am focussing on the tropical response to Heinrich Events over the last 45ka using a 3D-printed lake basin model in conjunction with core record to better constrain the environment over this period of Earth’s history. I have a strong interest in climate impact mitigation of which carbon storage is fundamentally necessary if we are to achieve the 1.5C target. I am very excited to take part in the enviroSPRINT event and I am looking forward to learning more and hearing the ideas of fellow post-graduate researchers!
