Dr James G Dyke is Lecturer of Complex Systems Simulation within Geography and Environment at the University of Southampton.

I model the Earth system in order to try to understand how it works and how humans interact with it.

I joined the University of Southampton in 2011 based in the Agents, Interaction and Complexity group within Electronics & Computer Science. My main role was as a tutor and then Acting Director of the Institute for Complex Systems Simulation Doctoral Training Centre. I transferred to Geography & Environment in August 2014.

My previous job at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry was centrered around the Helmholtz Alliance project Planetary Evolution and Life that was coordinated by the German Aerospace Agency. I am still a member of the NASA Astrobiology Focus Group Thermodynamics, Disequilibrium and Evolution.

More recently I've become interested in how a particular species is affecting the Earth and what that may mean for life now and in the future. Anthropogenic Climate Change has become something of a cause célèbre but other impacts that Homo sapiens are having on the Earth system are arguably as profound and long lasting.

I'm a co-chair of Sustainability Science Southampton which is an internationally recognised centre of interdisciplinary research excellence advancing the understanding of sustainability science towards alleviating some of society's global dilemmas.
