Research interests

My research activities are focussed on determining the factors influencing atmospheric transport and deposition of chemical constituents (mainly trace metals) and their subsequent impact on biogeochemical cycles in a variety of marine systems. Trace analytical methods and protocols have been both optimised and developed to facilitate the research aims; techniques of interest included ASV; ACSV; ICP-MS; ICP-AES.

Recent research activities have characterised aerosol populations in contrasting systems, including the Celtic Sea, Irish Sea, Eastern and Western Mediterranean and Red Sea. Studying such diverse marine systems has led to International research collaboration with Dr Nilgun Kubilay and Mr Mustafa Kocak (IMS-METU, Erdemli, Turkey; http://www.ims.metu.edu.tr); Dr Barak Herut (National Institute of Oceanography, IOLR, http://marine.ocean.org.il); Mr Mohammed Orif (Department of Oceanography,  Department of Marine Chemistry, King Abdul Aziz, Saudi Arabia ; http://www.kaau.edu.sa). Research activities have also allowed collaboration with other UK research groups; Drs Carol Turley and Phil Nightingale (PML; http://www.pml.ac.uk).
