Dr Ewan Woodley
Senior Lecturer in Geography


Ewan studied Geography at Swansea University from 2003-2006.  Research for his undergraduate dissertation sparked an enthusiasm for delving into climates of the past and led to a NERC/CASE funded PhD on ‘Reconstructing the climate of Scotland using stable carbon and oxygen isotopes in tree-rings’.  During his PhD, Ewan was involved with the Millennium Climate Change Project and worked closely with other UK and international isotope laboratories.  In 2010, he moved to a postdoctoral position at the NERC Isotope Geosciences Laboratory (Nottingham), where he was involved with a number of international research projects studying both palaeoclimatic variability and contemporary environmental issues.  He moved to the University of Exeter in September 2011.


Ewan is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
