Research Area(s)

  • Remote sensing of the atmosphere through optical means with a primary focus on satellite based optical instrumentation
  • Analysis of OSIRIS data for the purpose of studying the dynamics and photo-chemistry of the upper troposphere, the stratosphere and the mesosphere
  • Retrieval of atmospheric aerosol parameters through the investigation of their light scattering properties
  • Stratosphere Troposphere Exchange Processes (STEP), designed to study the processes that occur in the region know as the Upper Troposphere Lower Stratosphere (UTLS)
