Research interests

We use a multifaceted experimental approach, combining field measurements and laboratory experiments, to understand the evolution of particles in the atmosphere, and assess their effects on climate and on public health.

Our work includes:

  • Coordination chemistry in atmospheric aerosols and cloud/fog droplets
  • Analysis of terrestrial and marine biogenic markers in ice cores for paleoclimate reconstruction
  • Source apportionment of atmospheric aerosol using receptor models
  • Characterisation of atmospherically important organic radicals in the gas and particle phase
  • Cloud processing of atmospheric aerosol
  • Liquid Extraction Surface Analysis for the characterisation of nanoscale patterning in plants
  • Environmental fate of systemic insecticides
