Studies how biosphere-atmosphere-human interactions affect tropospheric oxidation capacity.
Deploys gas phase atmospheric constituents monitoring instrumentation to the field to constrain tropospheric oxidation capacity.
Works to understand air pollution from secondary photochemical products such as ozone and secondary organic aerosols; radiative forcers such as methane, secondary aerosols and ozone; and how photochemical interactions between anthropogenic air pollutants and natural origin reactive constituents affect local and regional oxidation capacity.

Expert in the production, emissions and atmospheric chemistry of oceanic trace gases, trace gas detectors, computer modeling and simulation, ice cores and air trapped in polar snow in Greenland and Antarctica.
