My research includes using global chemical transport models, in conjunction with satellite and aircraft observations, to study atmospheric composition and the factors that control it. In particular, I use the MOZART model and satellite measurements of carbon monoxide (CO) from MOPITT to study the transport of pollution from industrialized areas as well as biomass burning. Through quantitative comparison of the MOPITT CO retrievals and in situ measurements from aircraft, I have performed the validation of MOPITT CO observations.
