Research Overview
My research centres on investigating the sources, chemical evolution, and transport pathways of atmospheric pollution. I use a global chemical transport model combined with observational data sets (ground-based, aircraft, and satellite) to increase our fundamental understanding of the impacts of human activity and natural processes on atmospheric composition in diverse environments.

Why are models valuable tools for understanding our atmosphere? Check out this talk I gave at the inaugural UOW Budding Ideas research showcase in 2014.


  • Another SEAC4RS paper is available in ACPD. This one, led by Lei Zhu (Harvard) evaluates space-based HCHO observations from 6 retrievals on 4 satellites.
  • Iris Dion has joined the group as a new research assistant. She’ll be working with me and our collaborators at Macquarie University on modelling Australian mercury.
  • New paper available in ACPD on organic nitrate chemistry and its its implications for nitrogen budgets in an isoprene- and monoterpene-rich atmosphere.
  • Matthew Rees (QUT) completed his UOW-SMAH Summer Scholarship in the group.
  • Honours students Kaitlyn Lieschke completed her honours year and received an award for the best presentation at the NSW postgraduate symposium of the Autralian Meteorological & Oceanographic Society. Congrats Kaitlyn!
  • New title, same email: I am now a Lecturer in Environmental Sciences at UOW.

Prospective students:

I am always open to enquiries from students interested in undergraduate, honours, or PhD research and typically have a number of possible projects in mind. Previous experience with computer programming is useful but not necessary. If you are a prospective student with a background in chemistry, earth science, environmental science, math, physics, or computer science and have an interest in atmospheric modelling, send me an email! Other opportunities in the Centre for Atmospheric Chemistry can be found at
