In the run-up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), we asked our researchers to tell us about their work and the challenges of tackling climate change.
Dr Lee de Mora is a marine ecosystem modeller at Plymouth Marine Laboratory.
His research is dedicated to understanding how future emissions will affect our planet, especially the oceans, using computer simulations.
What I really want to see from COP26 is an international commitment to protect the ocean.
At the moment, only 2% of the ocean is protected from fishing and mining, but at COP26, we could choose to protect 30% of the ocean by 2030.
