Joseph Robinson (he/him/his)


I am a PGR based in the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science at the University of Leeds. I am supervised by Professor Ben Murray and Dr Jim McQuaid, as well as Dr Richard Cotton and Professor Paul Field at the Met Office. My project looks at Ice Nucleating Particles (INP) in mixed-phase clouds. My work involves in-situ measurements in the UK as well as lab-based experiments characterising our measurement techniques. Before Leeds, I received by BSc in Atmospheric Science from Purdue University in Indiana, USA. As well as my research, I serve as a PGR rep for ICAS. Outside of my research, I enjoy getting hiking, skiing, and singing.

Project outline

Ice Nucleating Particles (INP) are particles that lead to ice formation via heterogenous nucleation. My project involves measurement of INP in the Wessex region of the UK during the WesCon Campaign in 2022. Additionally, my project involves a comparison between the two filter measurement techniques used for INP measurement as well as an instrument intercomparison with the Met Office’s new Ice Nucleus Counter (INC)
