I am a Research Associate with a background in the remote sensing of atmospheric composition and land surface temperature (LST). Currently I'm responsible for the validation of LST datasets produced by the ESA Sentinel-3 Mission as part of the Copernicus Space Component Validation for Land Surface Temperature Aerosol Optical Depth and Water Vapor Sentinel-3 Products (""LAW"") Project


My research has centred on the retrieval and application of satellite datasets to monitor climate change and urban air quality.

I am willing to supervise PhD students on the following topics:

• Remote sensing of tropospheric composition

• Ozone-vegetation interactions

• Machine learning or statistical modelling incorporating satellite data


I currently do not teach any modules.

Press and media

• Earth Observation Science

• Climate change

• Air quality monitoring
