Kevin Anderson is Professor of Energy and Climate Change at the University of Manchester and Deputy Director of the internationally renowned Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research. He is one of Great Britain’s most recognized climate researchers and is well known for his skills in communicating climate science to decision-makers, the business sector, civil society and media. He has been pivotal in establishing research around carbon budgets and the transformation of different societal sectors to acceptable mitigation levels based on politically agreed goals. In Uppsala, Kevin will carry on the work initiated by the first Zennström professor Doreen Stabinsky: to establish a world-leading node in the area of climate change leadership, that will be unique, both in Sweden and internationally.
