Personal profile


BSc Physics Honours University of Edinburgh 1982; 

PhD UMIST Manchester Victoria University Modelling & Observations of Airflow over Hills;1986

Research interests

My main interests are interdisciplinary atmospheric science research topics including; surface atmosphere exchange of trace gases and particles; fast airborne particle detection; cloud microphysical processes; aircraft in situ cloud measurement techniques; aircraft greenhouse gas and other trace gas measurement techniques and surface trace gas flux measurement techniques. More recent intersts have focused on real-time bioaerosol detection using opteoelectronic UVLIF and polariosation scattering aerosol spectrometers.
