Atmospheric emissions; Air quality; Turbulent processes.
I study the emission, deposition, and transport of chemicals, pollutants, aerosols, and particles to and from various sources, including petroleum production facilities, road traffic, forests, and arctic environments. Prior to coming to York, I worked for 5 years as a physical scientist and post-doctoral researcher in the Air Quality department of Environment Canada. Current studies include emissions and mixing of pollutants from highway traffic, emissions from oil sands production facilities, and the interaction of pollutants with forest environments and mixing within the forest canopy. Previously, I have worked on wind-induced transport of sand particles and blowing snow in the Arctic.
