Dr Martin Mills is the Director of the Scottish Centre for Himalayan Research at the University of Aberdeen, and previously acted as briefing officer and secretary to the Scottish Parliament’s Cross-Party Group on Tibet. A specialist on Tibet and the Himalayans since the early 1990s, he has written extensively on a wide variety of topics, from the region’s religious communities, its history and governance, and is the author of Identity, Ritual and State in Tibetan Buddhism. From 2019-2021, he oversaw the Scottish parliamentary Third Pole Climate Change Inquiry, which concluded earlier this year with the publication of  Climate Change on the Third Pole: Causes, Processes and Consequences, a public review of international scientific findings on the mechanisms and developing effects of climate change on the Tibetan Plateau, both for the region itself and for surrounding areas of Asia.
