Overview

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.

Communicating Climate Science

The communication of climate science is a key challenge for academics. I am working with both natural and social scientists to develop effective pedagogies of climate change through both the Climate and Society research group and within my teaching practice.

This research covers a range of important issues, from ways of maximising the impact of climate change research, through to the development of understanding effective knowledge exchange and dissemination pathways. I am interested in enhancing university education through the development of new teaching strategies that avoid saturation approaches to climate change communication, often referred to as ‘green fatigue’. In this way, I seek to develop new pedagogies of climate change through both my research and teaching practice that encourage experiential learning by students and a move beyond Education merely for Climate Change, to a position where tertiary learning is a reflection of, rather than reaction to, the challenges of global environmental change.
