Biography

Cat is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow working with Prof. Ken Carslaw and Prof. Dominick Spracklen on the Horizon 2020 funded CRESCENDO project.

Cat also worked with Prof. Dominick Spracklen and Dr. Steve Arnold, on the NERC funded project "Developing a framework to test the sensitivity of atmospheric composition simulated by Earth System Models (ESMs) to changing climate and emissions".

Cat completed her PhD (The biogeochemical impacts of forests and the implications for climate-change mitigation) at the University of Leeds. For this work, Cat used a global aerosol microphysics model (GLOMAP) to simulate the impact of biogenic secondary organic aerosol (formed from natural compounds emitted by vegetation) on the climate.

Working with colleagues from the Schools of Earth and Environment, Geography, Biology and Chemistry, Cat is co-ordinating the Leeds Ecosystem, Atmosphere and Forest (LEAF) research centre. LEAF aims to bring together anyone working on forest/vegetation related research across the University, and make this research more accessible its end-users.
