Research overview

My PhD project focuses on chlorine chemistry in the troposphere with particular interests in its interactions with methane. This work uses the Frontier Research System for Global Change version of the University of California, Irvine Chemical Transport Model (FRSGC/UCI CTM) to increase the understanding of chlorine and its impacts on climate change and air pollution. I also work with Dr Fiona O'Connor from the Met Office and will use the UKESM later in my project.

I completed my BSc degree in Environmental Science in 2023, including a research project to investigate trends in high resolution weather data titled ‘Global Stilling: Is wind power running out?’
