Research interests:
* to understand and quantify chemistry and oxidation capacity of the atmosphere
* to quantify relative time scales of transport and biogeochemical conversion processes in atmosphere and oceans
* to understand and quantify variability in marine biological production and CO2 uptake down to small spatial scales
* to gauge the impact of human activities on greenhouse gas emissions in terrestrial and coastal environments

School of Environmental Sciences
Since its foundation in 1967, UEA’s School of Environmental Sciences has become one of the largest and most fully developed interdisciplinary institutions of its kind in Europe. The School provides a stimulating, innovative and active research environment for the study of natural and human environments. In the Research Excellence Framework exercise in 2014 (REF 2014), we were ranked first in the UK for the global impact of our research.
