Professor Mark Baldwin is the Head of Mathematics and Computer Science. He joined the University of Exeter in May 2012 as Chair in Climate Science, previously having served as Vice President and Senior Research Scientist at Northwest Research Associates (NWRA) in Seattle, USA. NWRA is a private company that specializes in basic and applied research in the geophysical sciences.

His training is as an atmospheric scientist and applied mathematician, having earned his Ph.D. at the University of Washington, Seattle. His research is focused on the role of the stratosphere in the climate system, in particular how ozone loss, increasing greenhouse gases, and natural variability of the stratosphere affect surface weather and climate on a time scale for ten days to centuries. He is particularly interested in understanding the dynamical mechanisms by which changes to the stratosphere can have substantial effects at Earth's surface, as well as exploiting this relationship to improve weather forecasts.

He is a Fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society, and a member of the London Mathematical Society and the Royal Statistical Society.
