Doug Gregg

PhD Researcher


I completed an Access to Higher Education programme in Combined Sciences during 2014/15. I then attained a BSc (Hons) in Geography in 2018 and an MSc in Geographical Information Systems and Environmental Management in 2019 both from the University of Brighton. After graduating I spent two years working in sustainability including one year at the University of Brighton during which time I co-authored a paper looking at changes in atmospheric composition within South East England during the Spring 2020 COVID-19 lockdown used by the DEFRA Air Quality Expert Group (AQEG). This paper was furthered into a full research article accepted for publication in 2020. In 2021 I joined the University of Leicester as a PhD researcher focusing on COVID-19 and Atmospheric Chemistry.


"My PhD is entitled ""Covid-19 and Air Pollution - Views of possible futures?"" and is funded by CENTA-NERC. My research will explain how atmospheric composition changed throughout the pandemic and explore whether any changes could be indicative of what atmospheric conditions will be in the future as humans move to decarbonise and move away from using combustion for heat and power. This will have a particular focus on nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) both of which can lead to health issues in humans during prolonged exposure. "
