Our group works on a variety of topics related to atmospheric chemistry, the carbon cycle, remote sensing, and inverse modeling. Broadly, our research focuses on understanding how carbon cycles through different reservoirs in the earth system. An underlying theme of our work is quantifying the impacts of variations in atmosheric chemistry on the carbon cycle and, conversely, bringing insights from the carbon cycle into atmospheric chemistry.
