Research interests

I'm fascinated by the dymanics of physical processes in both our atmosphere and beyond. I study anion and radical complexes in the gas phase to understand their reactivity and impact. The Wild Group studies these species using a combination of time-of-flight anion photoelectron spectroscopy and ab initio quantum chemical methods.

Current projects also include the development and implementation of a new slow electron velocity map imaging (SEVI) spectrometer at UWA and the applicaiton of density functional theory to larger molecular complexes.
