Research Interests

Revell Atmospheric Modelling Group website:

My research focuses on modelling the interactions between atmospheric chemistry and climate change. My current funded projects include:
- Measuring airborne microplastics and modelling their impacts on climate.
- Developing the aerosol and chemistry scheme in the New Zealand Earth System Model.
- Understanding the influence of the Antarctic ozone hole on the emergence of Southern Hemisphere climate change in the 21st century.
