My research interests focus on building computational models of atmospheric aerosol particles for use in interpretation of measured properties and as sub models for incorporation into climate change models. This broad classification masks a hierarchy of models and techniques with greatly varying complexity and range of applicability.  In addition, the research area is highly multi-disciplinary, covering: Physics, Chemistry, Numerical methods and Computational Science.

Computational chemistry is now widely applicable in a variety of biological, materials and chemical research areas. Computer simulation of the dynamics and electronic structures of chemical reactions and complex molecular systems helps us to understand these processes and provide a valuable complement to experiment.
