Dr Luke Harrington

Postdoctoral Research Assistant

Profile

Luke Harrington is a postdoctoral researcher, supporting several projects to understand how climate extremes respond to a warming world, as well as the downstream implications of these changes.

Luke's current research spans several elements of the climate change problem: (1) quantifying the influence of climate change on modifying the physical characteristics, and subsequent impacts, of recently-observed extreme weather events; (2) identifying how unevenly the impacts of climate change will emerge in the future, both in terms of geography, of different population groupings, and of their socio-economic characteristics; and (3) identifying how disparities between the beneficiaries of carbon emissions and those who suffer the impacts of these emissions translate to incentives for future decision making, both in terms of adaptation and mitigation planning.

Previously, Luke has been a Stipendiary Lecturer in Physical Geography at St Peter's College. Prior to arriving at Oxford, Luke completed his PhD thesis at Victoria University of Wellington, with a focus on developing novel metrics to quantify the emergence of anthropogenic climate change at decision-relevant scales.
