Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in the flow of gases in urban environments, and use perfluorocarbon trace gas releases to map the passage of air in urban cities. These are collected in bags for lab analysis using gas chromatography.

I am also interested in atmospheric electricity and have run campaigns measuring the atmospheric potential gradient.
