Trisha Patel holds a Master’s degree in climate change and sustainable development from the ACDI-UCT. Her dissertation looked at the potential impact of Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering on projected temperature and precipitation extremes in South Africa giving her a solid foundation in SRM research. Aspects such as the implications of SRM for human health and the spread of diseases were also included in her research, with the impacts of SRM on biodiversity being identified as an area requiring further research.
