Biography

Tim is a PhD student within the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences (ICAS) at the University of Leeds.

His project uses composition data assimilation, combining remote sensing satellites and global atmospheric models, to test our knowledge of atmospheric chemistry and aerosols. This has involved using the Composition Integrated Forecast System (C-IFS) and working with the reactive gases and aerosol groups at ECMWF. His work has particularly focussed on the impact of fires on ozone and carbonaceous aerosol concentrations.
