Personal profile

Research interests

My work focuses on modelling the production, transformation and loss of atmospheric aerosol.  Research during my PhD investigated methods to estimate aerosol component volatility and to model diffusion through single particles.  Currently I work on simulating aerosols in laboratory chambers and indoor environments using the PyCHAM model.
