Research interests

Dante is a Research Associate at the Centre for Climate Repair. The focus of his research is marine cloud brightening, a proposed method to increase the extent of sea ice in the Arctic region by increasing the reflectivity of low-lying clouds. His research involves the experimental and computational study of seawater droplets, including the generation of sprays conducive to the formation of cloud condensation nuclei.
