About me

I research the composition and impacts of aerosol particles: tiny particles that fill the air around us. Although they can’t be seen, their impacts on the world around us are enormous. They can influence climate change and alter the structure of clouds. In addition, breathing aerosol pollution kills millions of people across the globe every year, so it's vital to understand where it is coming from and how to reduce it. In my research, I use Chemical Ionisation Mass Spectrometry (CIMS) to measure the molecules that make up aerosol particles and trace gases in the air around them. I use this information to try and understand where the particles are coming from, what changes are happening to them in the atmosphere and what impact they are having on climate and human health. I explore these questions across a broad range of environments - from northern India, the most polluted region in the world, to Svalbard, one of the most remote.
