I am a NCAS research scientist working with Professor John Pyle and Dr Alex Archibald. My position is part-funded by the ERC project on Atmospheric Chemistry-Climate Interactions (ACCI). My background is in experimental physical chemistry and aerosol-cloud interactions, but since 2009 I have been working on numerical simulation of the atmosphere, focussing on the chemistry of the troposphere. My main interests are in halogens, NOx and heterogeneous chemistry. I am also interested in model-measurement comparisons and ways to quantify and improve model treatments of atmospheric composition.
- I am finishing up for work on the NERC BLOWSEA project, which examines the impact of blowing snow on tropospheric ozone. This involves collaboration with researchers at the British Antartic Survey, running simulations which quantify the release of bromine from sea-ice.
- I am involved with the “Oxidant Budgets of the Northern Hemisphere Troposphere Since 1950” (OXBUDS) project together with Alex Archibald and colleagues at UEA. I'm putting together a scheme for nitrate formation in UKCA.
- I take an interest in the implementation of Fast-Jx and heterogeneous chemistry in the development versions of UM-UKCA. Currently I'm running some simulations to investigate release of nitryl chloride, ClNO2, from sea-salt.
- I led our contribution to the TRANSCOM-VSLS intercomparison project, headed by Ryan Hossaini at Leeds, which looks at the transport and lifetime of very short lived halogen species.
I am a fellow and graduate tutor at Robinson College where I supervise Part IB Chemistry as well as sections of the Part IA and Part IB Geography tripos. I have also run supervisions in Part II courses 'High Resolution Spectroscopy', 'Chemistry of the Atmosphere' and Part III interdisciplinary course 'Atmospheric Chemistry and Global Change' as well as given lectures at Part II level (A6/B4).
