Present Research / Professional Specialty:
I work with the SOCOL (Solar-Climate Ozone Links) chemistry-climate model, and am currently involved in the following SOCOL-related activities:
  • Researching the impacts of greenhouse gases and other air pollutants on the tropospheric and stratospheric ozone budgets and their projected evolution through the 21st century. 
  • The IGAC/SPARC Chemistry-Climate Model Initiative (CCMI); I am co-PI for the SOCOL group based at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, for this activity.
