Dr Richard Millar
Postdoctoral Research Assistant
Richard is an Oxford Martin Fellow at the University of Oxford. He is part of the Oxford Martin Net Zero Carbon Investment Initiative
, which aims to connect the latest insights from climate science and economics to transition metrics for companies towards net zero carbon emissions.
Richard completed his DPhil in the Climate Dynamics group of the Department of Physics at the University of Oxford, where he worked on investigating uncertainty in the climate response to carbon dioxide and the implications for mitigation policy.
He previously conducted post-doctoral work at the College of Engineering, Mathematical and Physical Sciences of the University of Exeter.
Richard is a climate system scientist working on how insights from the climate science can be successfully embedded in effective climate and energy policy.
Richard's research spans the physical and economic consequences of climate policy and aims to investigate robust pathways to achieving global climate goals of net-zero emissions.
