Martin Mahony


Martin Mahony is a human geographer interested in how societies in different times and places make sense of weather, climate and environmental change, and with how science and technology intersect with politics and power. He’s worked extensively on the politics of climate change and on the interface between climate science and policy-making, with a particular interest in the functioning of the IPCC and in the role of models and visualisations at the science-policy interface. He has also recently been exploring these relationships in historical contexts, through a project on the role of meteorology and climatology in the administration of Britain’s late colonial empire. He is currently developing new projects on the place of scientific expertise within the post-Paris climate governance regime, and on the role of narratives of change in societal engagements with environmental futures.
