Tamsin Edwards

Dr Tamsin Edwards is a climate scientist specialising in quantifying the uncertainties of climate model predictions, particularly for the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheet contributions to sea-level rise.

Tamsin’s research accompanied by her teaching role at King’s College London, makes her a hugely engaging and informative speaker. She can draw from a wide range of research within her field of climate science and the environment and, as such, you will leave the auditorium feeling better informed, enlivened to join the debate and also more equipped to question your own and others’ pre-existing beliefs.

Tamsin has spoken in front of audiences at the Blue Dot Festival, the Royal Geographical Society, the UK Government Department for International Development and the  UK Government Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.

She is a lead author of the forthcoming Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report and a Contributing Author to the IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (2019).

Tamsin regularly advises the UK Government on sea-level rise, climate science and science communication, and provides expert comment to international media and business. She is an award-winning communicator, including through Twitter (@flimsin), her blog for the Public Library of Science (PLoS) All Models Are Wrong and articles for the Guardian. She is also the director of the MSc Climate Change: Environment, Science and Policy.

Tamsin regularly appears on various news outlets as an expert commentator for climate related news stories, included BBC News at 10, ITV News, BBC R4 Today Programme.
