Professor Joanna Haigh, CBE, to host Fifth Annual Distinguished Morley Seminar

Annual Distinguished Morley Seminar

The School of Mathematical, Physical and Computational Sciences is delighted to welcome Professor Joanna Haigh, CBE, as the host of the Fifth Annual Distinguished Morley Seminar on Thursday 25 May.

The annual lecture series is named in honour of Professor Edith Morley, who became the UK’s first female professor when appointed Professor of English Language in 1908. Each lecture is presented by an eminent female academic, scientist or researcher.  

Professor Joanna Haigh is Professor of Atmospheric Physics at Imperial College London and is the Co-Director of the Grantham Institute for Climate Change and the Environment. She is also a Fellow of the Royal Society, and a former president of the Royal Meteorological Society. 

Joanna’s research has appeared widely in both academic and popular science press, with her specialist areas including radiative transfer in the atmosphere, climate modelling, radiative forcing of climate change and the influence of solar irradiance variability on climate. She was appointed CBE in the 2013 New Years Honours.

In her lecture, "Physics, meteorology, the Sun and how I ended up in an exciting career I didn't anticipate" Joanna will present an outline of her research on solar variability and climate, as well as an objective overview of her career, her decisions along the way and the support she has received over the years. 

The lecture takes place on Thursday 25 May, 2.00pm, Nike Lecture Theatre, Agriculture Building, Whiteknights Campus. All staff and students are welcome to attend. Please see the lecture poster for the full description.
