Biography

Robyn joined the School of Earth Sciences as part of the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Group at the University of Melbourne in 2011. Her current research interests are:

  • Inverting spectroscopic observations of photochemically changing species
  • Radiative transfer modelling
  • Stratospheric ozone loss kinetics
  • Tropical tropopause layer processes driving stratospheric composition
  • Microphysical modelling

Previously she spent two years in Boulder, Colorado as a CIRES visiting fellow working at the NOAA Chemical Sciences Division looking at spectroscopy of clouds, aerosols, sulfur, nitrogen and ozone trends.

Robyn then worked at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Potsdam as a Humboldt Visiting Fellow looking at polar ozone loss kinetics and then as a Marie Curie International Incoming Fellow looking at tropical tropopause layer transport of chemical species to the stratosphere.
