My research (in a nutshell)
I study atmospheric aerosol, its impact on chemistry and climate, how it can be simulated efficiently in global models and, importantly, the uncertainty in those simulations.

Recent publication
An observationally constrained estimate of global dust aerosol optical depth (ACP)
