Mr Michael Traut

Following completion of my PhD at Tyndall Manchester (supervisors: Alice Bows-Larkin and Ruth Wood), I am now an EPSRC Doctoral Prize fellow in the same group. My research focusses on shipping and climate change, and monitoring and quantifying emissions, and on mitigation technologies in the shipping sector. I am associated with the EPSRC-funded consortium proejct Shipping in Changing Climates (SCC) as well as the project Fleet Suite.
