I am a research scientist at the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) and an affiliate with the NOAA Earth System Research Lab. I joined the lab in 2010, where my current activities involve measuring the rate of reaction of a selection of non-methane hydrocarbons towards the hydroxyl radical. I have researched into a variety of topics of atmospheric chemistry including:
- The development of structure-activity realtionships (SARs).
- The measurement of gas-phase rate coefficients.
- The development of a field chemical ionization mass spectrometer (CIMS) for the detection of ammonia, acids and nitrate radical aboard an airborne platform.
- The development of a novel atmospheric simulation chamber apparatus for the measurement of kinetics and product yields of reactions that otherwise present experimental challenges associated with low volatility, atmospheric contamination and slow rates of reaction.
