Personal profile

Personal profile

My research is on the changing concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, and particularly identifying sources of methane emissions using tools such as stable isotopic analysis and methane:ethane ratios. Measurements are made in air samples from background surface sites from the Arctic to the Antarctic and in field campaigns to better understand emissions from particular sources, often using mobile laser spectrometers installed in a car (MIGGAS), ship or aircraft (with FAAM or BAS).

Please contact me if you are interested in PhD opportunities related to atmospheric greenhouse gas research.
