Kevin has been a research associate at SEI since 1997 and has 25 years’ experience in the field of air pollution. He has a B.Sc. in Plant Science from the University of Liverpool (1989) and a Ph.D. on ‘The Importance to Upland Vegetation of Enhanced Nitrogen Deposition at High Altitude’ from the Department of Plant and Soil Science, University of Aberdeen, Scotland, UK (1996). His current research interests cover air pollution impacts, especially of nitrogen, on terrestrial ecosystems, linkages between air pollution and climate change, and the transfer of scientific information to the policy process.
He has extensive experience of international cooperation on air pollution issues in Europe and in developing countries and has helped organize various workshops, including a global meeting on Nitrogen Deposition, Critical Loads and Biodiversity in Edinburgh, UK, in 2009. He helped coordinate the 2011 UNEP/WMO Integrated Assessment of Black Carbon and Tropospheric Ozone and is active in the follow-up work in developing countries under the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC), where he is interested in the development of national action planning and the linkages between energy, food production and water and air quality management in the agricultural sector.
 
He served on the INI Europe Steering Group under Wilfried Winiwarter from 2013 to 2016, before becoming the INI Europe Director in December 2016.
