Lecturer in Atmospheric Chemistry Modelling, Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge; Fellow, Emmanuel College

As a result of the global COVID-19 pandemic, unprecedented lockdown measures have been imposed worldwide to reduce the spread of the disease, causing huge reductions in economic activity and corresponding reductions in transport, industrial and aviation emissions. As well as lowering emissions of long lived greenhouse gases, this has resulted in a dramatic reduction in the emissions of components which affect air quality. We will discuss our work in this area and the implications for future strategies to improve air quality and climate.
