Prior to my postdoctoral fellowship, I obtained my PhD in Chemistry at the University of New South Wales, Australia. There, I worked on understanding how atmospheric pollutants like nitrous oxide undergo decompostion by UV irradiation.

The Elements of Style for writing
When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling to new places and seeing new sights with my wife, particularly to places with great scenery (Canadian Rockies, Finland) and great food (Japan, London, and Hong Kong come to mind). During my time at the CfA, I was fortunate enough to travel frequently to various sites for observing and conferences; some of my highlights have been Mauna Kea in Hawaii (~14,000 ft) and Green Bank in West Virginia. These were definitely highlights of my scientific career; getting to go to places you wouldn’t necessarily go without a reason to!
