Research Experience and Education:

1999-Present: Research Scientist, Frontier Research System for Global Change (JAMSTEC/NASDA)
1996-1999: Postdoctoral Research Associate, Earth System Science, University of California, Irvine
1995-1996: Postdoctoral Researcher, Centre for Atmospheric Science, University of Cambridge
1995: Ph. D., Centre for Atmospheric Science, University of Cambridge
1990: B.A. (Natural Sciences), Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge

Research interests:

Modelling of atmospheric composition and chemistry, with particular interest in the evolution and tropospheric distribution of ozone and related oxidants. Key areas of interest are:

  1. Intercontinental transport of ozone and its precursors
  2. Indirect climate impacts of short-lived gases such as NOx and CO
  3. Factors controlling the ozone distribution over East Asia
  4. Meteorological impacts on continental ozone production and export
  5. Model treatments of tropospheric chemistry and photolysis
  6. The strengths and weaknesses of 3-D Eulerian models in simulating tropospheric ozone
