I am a Research Fellow at the Centre for Atmospheric Informatics and Emissions Technology, School of Water, Energy and Environment. 

Gas sensors: development of sensors for trace gas detection (ammonia, isoprene, dimethyl sulfide). 

Atmospheric modelling: studies on the oxidising capacity of the troposphere and investigations on the impacts of sinks of the hydroxyl radical (OH).

Reaction kinetics: investigations on the kinetics of halogen oxide radical reactions affecting atmospheric ozone.
