John Pyle

Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry, University of Cambridge

John’s research involves the use of state-of-the-art numerical models, run on supercomputers, to study the processes controlling the present state of the atmosphere and its evolution.

John is known for his extensive work on atmospheric chemistry and its interactions with climate. His early research focused on issues related to stratospheric ozone depletion but in the following decades his work has expanded into a variety of chemistry and climate-related fields.

He was elected to an FRS in 2004 and appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2017 New Year Honours for services to atmospheric chemistry and environmental science.
