Diarmaid Clery

Senior Research Associate

Diarmaid Clery joined the Tyndall Centre in 2019 upon completing his PhD at the University of Leeds. He now works as part of the Industrial Decarbonisation Research and Innovation Centre (IDRIC), working with stakeholders from CCUS clusters and the UK public to establish a social license for industrial decarbonisation, carbon capture storage (CCS) and bioenergy with CCS (BECCS).

The overall aim of his research is to understand the interdisciplinary issues related to tackling climate change, including decarbonisation and greenhouse gas removal (GGR). He was previously part of the Tyndall Centre at the University of East Anglia (UEA) where he worked within the FAB-GGR team on a stakeholder workshop and policy briefing notes. He also completed a policy internship with the Government Office for Science in 2018. His background is in engineering, working as an engineer for Foster Wheeler Energy and completed his PhD in technical aspects of BECCS as part of the Bioenergy CDT at Leeds.
