Dr Ailish Graham


I’m a research fellow in the School of Earth and Environment, where I work in Martyn Chipperfield’s group. My work focuses on the impacts of current and future agricultural emissions on air pollutants (particularly ozone) and crop yields in China. 

Research interests

My main reserach interests are:

  • The relationship between emissions and meteorology and their impact on regional air quality (AQ) 
  • Atmospheric modelling of air pollutants (e.g. PM2.5, O3 and NO2)
  • AQ and its impact on population exposure (e.g. the 2018 Saddleworth Moor fires, the Australia megafires 2019/2020, the impact of changes in emissions in the future)
