My scientific interests mainly lie with understanding the chemistry and dynamics of the middle and upper atmosphere. I currently lead development of the Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model, part of the Community Earth System Model (CESM - website). This work is motivated by an appreciation of the importance of coupling between atmospheric regions (both upward and downward). The goal is to understand variability of atmospheric composition, including studies of the influence of green house gas trends and variable solar forcing and their role in climate. I am co-investigator on the TIMED mission, and was guest investigator on the SNOE mission. I am currently the Team Leader for the International Space Science Institute International Team on "Quantifying Hemispheric Differences in Particle Forcing Effects on Stratospheric Ozone".
