James Mason is a PhD researcher at Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, who are a research group that are part of The University of Manchester. His research focuses on reducing carbon dioxide emissions in the international shipping industry. Working alongside Dr John Broderick and Professor Alice Larkin, James is looking at how weather data can be used to estimate fuel-efficient routes for ships with modern sails installed.
James Mason graduated from The University of Manchester in 2016 with an integrated Master’s degree in Physics. His master's project involved work on a dilution refrigerator which successfully cooled liquid helium to 100mK. He has also undertaken an internship at The University of Manchester which involved statistically modelling the emission spectra of laser nanowires.
