Dr Matthew Gidden

Matthew is a Senior Scientific Advisor supporting the Climate Policy Team at Climate Analytics. He provides targeted support on all aspects related to climate mitigation and advises the team on interpreting, translating, and synthesising scientific and modelling results into policy-relevant contexts. In his role with the CPT, Matthew utilises his deep experience in the integrated modelling methods underpinning IPCC assessments to support analysis identifying sustainable mitigation pathways for regions and countries to achieve the Paris Agreement in the context of both techno-economic feasibility and environmental justice.

Classically trained as a nuclear engineer, he received his PhD and Master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin at Madison and an undergraduate degree in the same field from Texas A&M University. His research interests include investigating the effects and impacts of climate change on populations as well as the energy system mitigation and adaptation options available under different scenarios of the future.
