Dr Matthew Baddock, of Loughborough University, UK, brings to the Network crucial expertise related to dust production and wind erosion problems from human alteration of landscapes, such as mines. He is using satellite imagery to identify sources of dust and dust plumes, which provides a means to determine downwind locations and populations most vulnerable to active sources of dust. Dr Baddock is an early career researcher who has been a lecturer at Loughborough University since 2014. His involvement with this Network will provide important opportunities for his career development and further strengthen ties between young researchers at southern African and UK universities.
