Series Ed.: McGregor, Glenn R.

Professor Glenn McGregor, BSc; MSc; PhD

I joined Durham University in March 2014 and hold the title of Professor of Climatology and Principal of Ustinov College.

I graduated with a BSc and MSc (1st Class) in Geography from the University of Auckland in the mid to late 1970s. Following the completion of my MSc at Auckland (glacial sedimentology) I was awarded a NZ University Grants Committee PhD scholarship which I took up at the Department of Geography, University of Canterbury in Christchurch (South Island of New Zealand) where I undertook research on snow avalanches. Following completion of the PhD I won a Japanese Government Monbusho scholarship for 2 years postdoctoral research at the Institute of Low Temperature Science, University of Hokkaido, Japan where I followed up on snow avalanche related research. At the end of the postdoc I returned to NZ to work in the environmental consultancy industry for 12 months and then took up my first academic post at the University of Papua New Guinea in 1987 where I worked until 1990 before leaving for Hong Kong to work in the Department of Geography at Hong Baptist College (now Hong Kong Baptist University). Following three years in Hong Kong, I moved to the University of Birmingham, UK where I worked for 13 years in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences moving from Lecturer at the time of my appointment to Reader just before my departure to take up a Chair in Physical Geography at King’s College London (KCL) in 2005. In 2008 I left KCL and returned to my Alma Mata to take up the position of Director of the School of Environment (2008 - 2013) and Professor of Climatology and Associate Dean International in the Faculty of Science (2013 - 2014).
