Alice Bows - Theme Lead and Flagship PI - Climate change mitigation and adaptation in the UK food system
Alice Bows is Theme Leader for Climate Change and Carbon at the SCI and Senior Lecturer in Energy & Climate Change within MACE. She is currently PI on three projects: the SCI's Flagship Project exploring coupled mitigation and adaptation scenarios, an SCI project on shipping emissions and an EPSRC funding project entitled - High Seas - (EP/H02011X/1). Alice supervises one SCI PhD researcher, Maria Sharmina, and Tyndall affiliated PhD researchers Dan Calverley and Michael Traut.
Following three years as an SCI Lecturer in Energy and Climate Change in the School of Earth Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at The University of Manchester, Alice now works in the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering as a Senior Lecturer. Alice trained as an astrophysicist at the University of Leeds, making the transition into climate change through her PhD in climate modelling at Imperial College, London. After her PhD she worked in science communication, returning to academia in 2003 when she joined the Tyndall Centre, Manchester to research conflicts between the UK's climate change and aviation policies and develop energy system scenarios. Between 2009 and 2010 she took on the role as Tyndall's Energy Programme leader. As a senior interdisciplinary researcher and lecturer, Alice is involved in diverse projects studying greenhouse gas emission pathways, energy demand and supply, international transport and consumption-production systems all in the context of climate change. Alice leads The University of Manchester's Aerospace Research Institute's (UMARI) Environment theme, is associated editor for a new journal Carbon Management and she is a member of the Institute of Physics and a Chartered Physicist.
