Speaker information

Dr Tristan Smith, UCL Energy Institute
Professor John Carlton, City University

Part of the Sea Changes Lecture series organized by IMarEST in association with UCL Engineering.

Unpicking exactly who produces which emissions, and how that can be reduced and managed requires a complicated mix of data from satellites, shipyards and seafarers. Dr Smith’s talk will outline ongoing work at UCL on this subject, and what it can tell us about the future of ships and shipping.

Facing the challenge of reducing shipping emissions requires cooperation between scientists, engineers, technologists and policy makers who all have vital roles to play, as Professor Carlton will explore.

Then it’s your turn to contribute to the debate, as the speakers are joined by Dr Gillian Reynolds, Environment and Sustainability Consultants, Professor Richard Bucknall, UCL Mechanical Engineering, and Dr Alistair Greig as chair, for a panel discussion on these issues, followed by a drinks reception.
