Personal profile


I joined the University of Edinburgh as a postdoctoral research associate in 2017 in the School of GeoSciences. Before this, I completed my PhD in atmospheric chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Bristol (2012-2016). My undergraduate studies were in Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge (2006-2010).

Research Interests

My research focuses on our understanding of greenhouse gas emissions. I use data from satellites and ground-based platforms that tell us about the composition of the atmosphere, to estimate the magnitude and location of emissions of important greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane. I am especially interested in the development of statistical methods to improve the way we estimate emissions so that we can be confident that our estimates are robust. Developing frameworks to detect and monitor changes in emissions on a regional scale is key to understand the current changes in atmospheric composition and to monitor the progress of countries as they attempt to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.


Research Groups

I am part of Paul Palmer’s Atmospheric Composition Modelling Group in the School of GeoSciences.
