[Research area]: During my years at Berkeley Geography, I was working in the Atmospheric Biogeochemistry Laboratory under the supervision of Professor Robert C. Rhew. My primary research interest is the biogeochemistry of trace gases, such as halocarbons, OCS (carbonyl sulfide), biogenic volatiles, with a focus on their sources and sinks.
