Atmospheric Chemistry in the Polar Regions of the Earth


My research focuses on using modeling to understand and describe atmospheric chemistry, air quality, and links to climate change. I develop and use 1D chemistry-transport models, 3D regional chemical transport models, meteorological models, and Lagrangian particle dispersion models, with a primary focus on understanding atmospheric chemistry in polar regions of the Earth.
