Fields of interest: 
Atmospheric chemistry, atmospheric composition, Air quality, carbon dioxide, methane, urban, remote, marine

My research focuses on the surface - atmospheric exchange that affects atmospheric composition. For much of 2016-2018 I was measuring CO2, CH4, N2O and CO in the remote atmosphere on the NASA DC-8 aircraft as part of the ATom project. I also work on understanding carbon dioxide and methane in the Arctic as part of the NASA CARVE and ABoVE projects. Prior to that I developed a laser spectrometer instrument to measure fluxes of carbonyl sulfide (OCS) and deployed this instrument at Harvard Forest, MA. I worked to understand the processes controlling the OCS flux through collaboration with colleagues in the ecological sciences.  Personal Webpage
