Masters Student, Department of Earth Sciences, University of Cambridge
Tim Middleton’s current research project concerns the frictional properties of active faults and he is particularly fascinated by both earthquakes and natural hazards more generally. He is a University of Cambridge Ambassador for the organisation Geology for Global Development, which seeks to encourage geoscientists to use their knowledge to help improve people’s lives and fight poverty.
He also enjoys science communication and was previously President of BlueSci, Cambridge University’s science magazine. He writes regularly for the magazine as well as for the student newspaper Varsity, and The Euroscientist blog. He recently completed a placement at the UK Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology working on climate engineering and he hopes to pursue his interest in science and policy in the future.
