B.S. 1998 University of British Columbia Chemistry
M.S. 2003 University of California, Berkeley ESPM - Ecosystem Science

Research in my group aims to understand the chemical composition of the atmosphere and how it is affected by humans and by the biosphere.  We use a combination of field measurements, computer models, and satellite remote sensing to study atmospheric processes at multiple scales.
