From 1994, Eoghan spent the next 15 years at University College London in the Atmospheric Physics Laboratory studying the polar upper atmosphere, first as a PhD student and then as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow until 2009. He then joined the Imperial College INSPIRE teacher training programme and became a qualified teacher in 2010 before joining SCAR as a Project Officer in September 2011. In this role he has helped manage aspects of the Open Science Conferences, Climate Change communications and most recently the day-to-day finances at the Secretariat.
Eoghan will work with the outgoing Executive Officer, Renuka Badhe, during December to ensure a smooth handover. Renuka will be the new Executive Secretary of the European Polar Board from January 2015.
