Professor Clare Bond is an Earth Scientist interested in global interactions of Earth processes and people. My research activities aim to achieve impact on and accelerate our energy transition to net zero.
I am Chief Scientist for the NERC led UKRI Carbon Storage Research Facility scoping study funded by the UKRI infrastructure fund; and a member of the Committee on Radioactive Waste Management advising the UK Government on radioactive waste disposal. I am also a Director of Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage. I focus on research across a range of topics: including how the crust deforms as a result of natural and anthropogenic processes, investigating uncertainties and human biases in subjective data interpretation and links between society and science. These research areas link to contemporary challenges including carbon storage, communication of science, understanding and communicating scientific uncertainty, geothermal energy, and radioactive waste disposal.
