Pete Irvine is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Pete conducts research on the climate and broader impacts of solar geoengineering and works to put those findings into perspective with the risks posed by climate change. He works with researchers from a range of disciplines to explore the implications of solar geoengineering as a potential means of reducing the risks of climate change. Current work includes evaluating the potential effectiveness of different solar geoengineering proposals at reducing sea-level rise and on contextualizing the effects of solar geoengineering against the effects of climate change.
