Tom Matthews is a climate scientist based at King’s College London in the U.K. He has broad interests in the societal impacts from climate change but focuses on severe weather events. This drives Matthews to understand the planet's most extreme climates. From deadly tropical heat waves to severe, cold-weather mountain windstorms, Matthews’s research aims to map the limits of Earth's climate envelope and chart its course as it is shifted by human-caused climate change.
