I am a final year PhD student based in the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science. My PhD research involves simulating size-resolved nitrate aerosol concentrations in order to ascertain its effects on European air quality and climate. Prior to starting my PhD I completed an integrated Masters Degree in Meteorology and Climate Science at the University of Leeds, which included a study abroad year at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the U.S.A.
