Biography

I am an atmospheric scientist and my main interests are in tropospheric ozone chemistry and in halogenated gases that are stratospheric ozone depleting and greenhouse gases.  I came to UEA as a student in 1983 and loved it so much that I never left.  Initially I studied for a BSc in Environmental Sciences before obtaining a PhD in Atmospheric Science.  I was then employed as a researcher for 15 years on various projects and, for a couple of years, supported by the National Centre for Atmospheric Research (NCAS).  In 2005 I began a RCUK Academic Fellowship, during which I took on teaching responsibilities.  I teach atmospheric chemistry to undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as fundamental maths to 1st year Environmental Science students.  In 2010 I became a Reader.

By training, I am a theoretical modeller, but my research activities focus on the interpretation of field data.  This has included data from our Weybourne Atmospheric Observatory on the North Norfolk coast and other sites in the UK, Ireland, Australia and Malaysia. I have been involved in many campaigns using Met. Office C-130 aircraft and the Facility for Atmospheric Airborne Research (FAAM) BAE-146 aircraft, including major international collaborative experiments flying over the Atlantic (ICARTT) and West Africa (AMMA). I have also investigated long term trends of trace gases using data from air trapped in firn (unconsolidated snow).

My research on tropospheric ozone has focused on the processes that control its temporal and spatial trends, in particular the roles of long range transport and biogenic emissions, along with the chemistry of peroxy radicals, peroxides and alkyl nitrates.  My work on halogenated gases has largely involved modelling the atmospheric budgets of these gases using measurements of their atmospheric concentrations as constraints.  I have been a co-author of the UNEP/WMO Scientific Assessments of Ozone Depletion that are used by the Parties to the Montreal Protocol to amend their controls on ozone depleting substances.

I am on the NCAS Executive Committee, the NERC Peer Review College and am a co-editor of the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics.
