My research focuses upon understanding processes controlling clouds in the Earth’s atmosphere and the roles that clouds play in determining climate variability and change, the formation of rain, and how tiny aerosol particles (both natural and anthropogenic) interact with clouds and help determine their physical and radiative properties. My research uses a combination of observational data collected with aircraft, satellites and from ground-based remote sensing, together with numerical and theoretical models. I am currently a member of the PCC board.
