Projects per year
My main research interest is applying statistical methods to problems in atmospheric science.
I aim to quantify characterists of emissions sources, such as their location and the size of the emissions, using atmospheric measurements. The emissions are generally non-CO2 greenhouse gases, such as methane, and ozone depleting substances. In addition I also take an interest in airborne hazards, such as following a nuclear incident or volcanic eruption.
I have a general interest in the detection and quantification of atmospheric gases, clouds and aerosols in the context of climate, stratospheric ozone and hazards, and the wider application of statistical methods in geosciences.
