Research Overview

My research interests are in understanding changes in atmospheric composition. This includes making in situ and remote-sensing measurements of the atmospheric state, and atmospheric modelling of sources and sinks. My primary interests are in using Fourier Transform InfraRed Spectroscopy to measure atmospheric amounts of greenhouse gases. In addition, I use atmospheric transport models to understand what drives the variability in the measured quantities.

I am an active member of both the Total Carbon Column Observing Network and the Network for Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change, as well as becoming involved in the GEOS-Chem modelling community.

Prospective students:
If you are interested in atmospheric science, and have a background in earth sciences, physics, mathematics, chemistry or computer science, there are typically a number of possible honours and short term research projects available. Previous experience with computer programming is useful but not necessary. If you are a prospective student, send me an email!

The Centre for Atmospheric Chemistry is currently searching for 2 postgraduate doctoral students. For details, please see the following position details
