Atmospheric Halogen Chemistry
Chemical Kinetics and Photochemistry
I am a member of the Air Pollution & Atmospheric Chemistry group within the Environmental Health Sciences research team.
We are part of the School of Geography, Earth & Environmental Sciences
My research is in the field of Atmospheric Chemistry - understanding the chemical processes which control the current and future composition of our atmosphere. We approach these problems through a combination of field measurements of atmospheric constituents, laboratory studies of specific systems, and modelling simulations for comparison with observations. Current research areas include :
- Measurement and interpretation of ozone production in the atmospheric boundary layer
- Sources and sinks for atmospheric oxidants: Impacts upon urban air quality and tropospheric composition
- The atmospheric chemistry of halogen species, in particular iodine chemistry in the marine boundary layer
Please see Research Pages for more details.
