Professional biography

I am currently working on the MAMM project ("Methane and other greenhouse gases in the Arctic - Measurements, process studies & Modelling"), making airborne methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) measurements using quantum cascade laser absorption spectrometry (QCL).

More details on MAMM here: http://www.faam.ac.uk/index.php/current-future-campaigns/354-mamm-methane-mapping

and here: http://www.arctic.ac.uk/mamm/

From 2010-2011 I worked on the RONOCO project, which investigated the role of nighttime chemistry in controlling the oxidising capacity of the atmosphere. Find some more details here:


I am also part of a team of researchers who produce a regular podcast about the exciting world of weather, climate and atmospheric science! The Barometer podcast is free to download and can be found here:
