Research Overview

My research centres on investigating the sources, chemical evolution, and transport pathways of atmospheric pollution. I use a global chemical transport model combined with observational data sets (ground-based, aircraft, and satellite) to increase our fundamental understanding of the impacts of human activity and natural processes on atmospheric composition in diverse environments.

Teaching Overview

I teach earth systems science and introductory programming to undergraduate students. For more details, including my teaching philosophy, please see my teaching portfolio. To access the Jupyter notebooks I use for teaching Python, please see my teaching Github page.


  • I am excited to have accepted a new (part-time) position as the Associate Dean Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the UOW Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health!
  • Daniel Saeed joins us as a new Honours student, working jointly with ANSTO. Welcome Daniel!
  • I presented our work using unique datasets combined with atmospheric models to understand the chemistry and composition of the Southern Hemisphere atmosphere for the NOAA Chemical Sciences Laboratory seminar series.
  • Sam Limbrey was awarded a 2019 ACEDD Scholar Award in recognition of his outstanding scholarship in the Bachelor of Science (Honours) - the same week that he submitted his Honours thesis! Congratulations, Sam!
  • Sandra Koenigseder arrived from Germany to start her PhD. Sandra will primarily be working with Tim Barrows on tidewater glaciers, using climate model output. A nice opportunity for some interdisciplinary research!
  • Dr Jesse Greenslade has officially completed his PhD. Following an APR internship, he is now a contract employee at the Bureau of Meteorology. Congratulations, Jesse!
  • Dr Bea Bukosa has officially completed her PhD. She is now a postdoc at NIWA in New Zealand. Congratulations Bea!
  • Maria Paula Perez-Peña joins us as a joint PhD student, based primarily in the Kable group at UNSW. Welcome Maria!
  • I am honoured to have received 3rd place in the Australian competition for the APEC Science Prize for Innovation, Research and Education (ASPIRE Prize) nomination.
  • PhD student Bea Bukosa’s paper on shipborne measurements of carbon gases is now published in ACP.
  • New paper on nitrogen chemistry over the remote Pacific Ocean is now available in JGR-Atmospheres.
