Welcome to my site. I am a lecturer and an atmospheric scientist/climate modeler/atmospheric chemist/call-me-what-you-will, working at the Lancaster Environment Centre in Lancaster University, UK. Until autumn/fall 2012, I was based at the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory working for CIRES at the University of Colorado, both in Boulder, Colorado.

I work on issues related to understanding air pollution, atmospheric composition, climate variability, and climate change. I use a mixture of observations, Earth system models, chemical transport models and box models. 

Here you can find out about my latest work, my publications or my presentations. If you have any questions, please get in contact. This link is for my official Lancaster webpage.
