Research Interests

Accurate measurements are the cornerstone on which atmospheric chemistry knowledge is built. From the deepest oceans to the highest altitudes, analytical equipment has enabled us to determine oceanic and atmospheric composition: driving climate models and furthering our understanding of the world in which we all inhabit.                                                                  

My experience in analytical instrumentation is built upon extensive field experience and a global network of expert contacts. Harsh environments are the norm, with systems deployed in the Arctic Ocean, South East Asian rainforests and onboard research aircraft, to name a few. My research strives to forward the analytical state of the art. This includes revision and improvements of existing techniques, but also novel technologies to address current climate issues.
