About

My research focus is the impact of aerosol chemical composition upon regional air quality and climate and the interplay between them. My research has focused mainly on airborne applications, in combination with ground-based field experiments and remote sensing techniques. Ultimately, I am interested in how processes and impacts elucidated by such measurement techniques can be related to regional and global aerosol models, in order to quantify the consequences of changes in aerosol chemical composition upon both present and future climate. My research has focused upon ammonium nitrate aerosol formation and the sources and transformation of Secondary Organic Aerosol (SOA). This has included how the semi-volatile nature of ammonium nitrate has major implications for its climate impact and how the processing of SOA proceeds downwind of its source regions. Recently, my research has focused upon night-time heteorogeneous reactions upon aerosol surfaces and the interaction of ammonium nitrate aerosol within the life-cycle of nitrogen containing species in the atmosphere. I am a committee member of the North West Local Centre of the Royal Meteorological Society. My duties include meeting organisation and promotion.
