Biography

I am an atmospheric chemistry modeller. Before I joint British Antarctic survey in 2014, I had been working in the Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge for 12 years. My major research field is using global chemistry transport and climate models to investigate regional and gloabl issues in both tropopshere and stratosphere. I was one of the first to apply a detailed tropospheric bromine chemistry in a global model to study its effect on tropospheric ozone. I hypothesized a mechanism of sea salt production from blown salty snow particle on sea ice (via a sublimation process) which has recently been proved by a winter cruise in the Weddell sea.
