Research Interests
The Advanced Global Atmospheric Gasses Experiment (AGAGE) makes high precision, high frequency measurements of atmospheric trace gas at several points around the world. I am interested in using these measurements, along with computer models of atmospheric transport and chemistry, to investigate the sources and sinks of some important "greenhouse" gases.
