The GASSP team consists of scientists from the UK, the United States and Germany, and is growing all the time. The project is a collaboration of the Universities of Leeds, Oxford and Manchester, with international data partners. The team consists of expertise in global aerosol modelling combined with aerosol observations from ship, aircraft and land-based sites, as well as statistical modelling.
Lindsay Lee is a statistician at Leeds. She is developing methods for model emulation, calibration and statistical analysis.
Carly Reddington is an aerosol modeller at Leeds. Carly’s role in GASSP is aerosol model analysis and evaluation against measurements.
Graham Mann at Leeds is funded by NCAS to develop the UKCA aerosol model.
Dominick Spracklen is an Associate Professor at Leeds and is a co-investigator in GASSP.
Kirsty Pringle is an aerosol research scientist at Leeds. Kirsty’s role in GASSP is aerosol model analysis and evaluation against measurements.
