Bart Verheggen is a teacher and tutor at Amsterdam University College in the Netherlands, where he’s teaching several earth and climate science related courses. His research background is in atmospheric chemistry (PhD York University, Canada, 2004). He spent several years doing postdoctoral research in Switzerland, studying the interactions between aerosols, clouds and climate. At the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) he has worked for several years on projects related to air quality, climate change and sustainability. While on a temporary assignment at the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL), he conducted a large and detailed survey about climate science amongst International scientists.
