Padraig graduated from Maynooth University in 2013 with an International BA in Geography and Economics, where he first became interested in climate change. As part of this degree he spent a year studying at Utrecht University, studying a diverse range of subjects including psychology and medieval Irish literature. He returned to Maynooth University to continue his studies and graduated from the M.Sc. in Climate Change in 2014 receiving the department prize. He is currently working towards a PhD investigating the impacts of climate change and extreme weather on Irish agricultural emissions of soil carbon and nitrogen. This involves the use of statistical computing, R, Python and GIS.
Thesis working title: Investigating the impacts of climate, climate change and weather volatility on Irish agricultural emissions of soil carbon and nitrogen.
