I am an atmospheric chemistry modeller, with experience developing both process-based models and statistical models. My research interests include atmospheric chemistry and biogeochemical cycles, with a focus on the nitrogen cycle and air quality. I am particularly interested in the exchange of nitrogen-containing compounds between the land and atmosphere, and the atmosphere and oceans.
My PhD research topic was modelling the global atmospheric ammonia budget. Prior to doing my PhD, I worked as an environmental engineer in surface and groundwater quality, and as a statistical software engineer.
