EDUCATION AND QUALIFICATIONS
1998 - 2002 UMIST, Physics
Department, (Atmospheric Physics Research Group).
Ph.D. research project entitled “Aspects of
Biosphere Atmosphere Exchange and Chemical Processing of Aerosol”.
+ Thesis based on measurements taken
in several field projects in Britain and abroad. The work involved
development of an aerosol eddy covariance measurement system based on
a commercial sensor modified for high frequency use. An extensive
suite of data analysis tools was developed as part of the system. The
resulting data were interpreted using microphysical and
+ Participated in several
international experiments on cloud microphysics and trace gas and
aerosol fluxes. Published the first ever direct measurements of urban
aerosol fluxes. Consultancy work on aerosol in power station plumes
for a UK power generation firm.
+ Experience of operation,
maintenance, calibration and software development for numerous
aerosol and micrometeorological instruments.
+ Presentations made as part of the
research resulted in two research council awards.
Laboratory demonstrator for various undergraduate courses and the MSc
Physics of the Atmospheric Environment course. Experiments included
introduction to cutting edge research instrumentation, and basic
physics and statistics.

+ Working on EU Framework V programme on Oxidised
Nitrogen emission from European forests. Research largely self
directed according to the needs of a large consortium.
+ Responsible for eddy covariance flux
measurements of NO, NO2, O3, CO2 and
H2O fluxes. Co-ordinated an international field experiment
involving several European research groups, and state of the art
+ Responsible for development of a multi-layer
canopy micrometeorological model in response to the results of these
field measurements. Further parameterisation of this model for
inclusion in a regional climate / circulation scheme (EMEP) in
collaboration with a large European consortium. Responsible for
+ Seconded to
TNO division of Environment, Energy and Process Innovation, the
Nether- lands, working with Dr. J.H. Duyzer on modelling the
response of soil chambers to trace gas emission. Worked on written
reports and research papers as a “language consultant”.
+ Designed and constructed an automated dynamic chamber
system for gas flux measurements.
Industrial project on quality control and testing for a carpet
manufacturer in Preston. Research on the variability of industry
standard test results on the electrical properties of carpets.
Communication of these results and their implications to a
commercial, non- scientific customer.
1995 - 1999 +
Hang gliding instructor (TI) and part time operations manager for
Pennine Hang Gliding Centre in West Yorkshire. Responsible for
practical and theoretical training of up to thirty student pilots per
day. Arranged appropriate staffing levels and planned training
activities in the UK and abroad.
