Academic Interests

Ocean - Middle Atmosphere Interaction

I am an atmospheric scientist, focusing my research on stratospheric dynamics and the role of transport from ozone and climate relevant gases from the Earth and Ocean surface to the middle atmosphere. For example, I work on large explosive volcanic eruptions impact on climate, environment and society. I am particular interested on how volcanic and oceanic halogens and sulphur affect the atmosphere and climate during present day and paleo time scales. Other areas of research include stratospheric dynamics such as sudden stratospheric warming, the Brewer Dobson Circulation and the Quasi Biennial Oscillation, meteorological reanalyses and the tropical tropopause layer.
