Centre for Atmospheric Science

Research Associate

I am an NCAS Research Scientist working with Prof. Alex Archibald in the Centre for Atmospheric Science.

I use numerical models and observations to investigate physical and chemical processes in the atmosphere. I work with UKCA, the United Kingdom Chemistry and Aerosols community model, based on the Met Office Unified Model. I have past experience in addressing the effect of model horizontal resolution on a number of different dynamical and chemical processes. Currently, I'm working on better integration of models and observational data. 

 

Key Research Interests

  • Decadal changes in tropospheric ozone.
  • Model evaluation and comparison with observations.
  • Tropical deep convection and its impact on Troposphere/Stratosphere exchange.
  • Lightning emissions and their impact on climate.
  • Very short lived ozone depleting species (VSLS) and their impact on stratospheric ozone at the Tropical tropopause
  • Impacts of emission changes and climate on regional atmospheric composition.

 

Experience

  • Research Scientist: 2006-present. University of Cambridge.
  • Research Scientist: 2008-present. National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS)
  • Regional Climate Scientist: 2002-2006. Met Office, Hadley Centre.
  • PhD: 1998-2001. University College London.
  • Master Degree, Chemistry: 1992-1997. University of Palermo, Italy.
