Research Interests

My primary research objective is to contribute to public protection and adaptation to climate change/extreme natural events as demonstrated by my science service experience. My research fellowship is concerned with understanding the delivery of aerosolized nutrients to the oceans. This study aims to understand element solubility of natural dust and ash samples, pre- and post-mixing with air pollutants. I am also responsible for the Cohen Research Group’s website and the team leader for an Environment YES! (Young Entrepreneurs Scheme) bid.
