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.


  • 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) joined us as a UOW-SMAH Summer Scholar. Welcome Matt!
  • 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.
  • New paper published in ACP! Led by Patrick Kim, it’s the first GEOS-Chem interpretation of the SEAC4RS aircraft campaign observations, focused on aerosols in the Southeast US.
  • New co-authored paper about Arctic mercury accepted in GRL, and featured on the GeoSpace blog.

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
