Naomi Vaughan

University of East Anglia


Role at Tyndall

Dr Naomi Vaughan - Geoengineering Naomi is a Senior Research Associate and Project Manager for the Integrated Assessment of Geoengineering Proposals ( Her PhD thesis on the subject of climate change mitigation and geoengineering included an extensive review of the literature (submitted to Climatic Change) on geoengineering proposals and provides a synthesis of the major issues and specifically how they interact with mitigation. Lenton & Vaughan [2009] was the first paper to calculate the potential maximum effectiveness of the range of published geoengineering proposals in terms of radiative forcing. Nem is also the Co-ordinator for the GeoEngineering Assessment and Research (GEAR) initiative at the University of East Anglia (
