Kirsti Ashworth

Lancaster University

Dr Ashworth is currently the Royal Society Hodgkin Research Fellow at Lancaster University. Her research focuses on the interactions and feedbacks between the biosphere, atmosphere and society. She aims to bring a fundamental understanding of the complex processes involved in the exchange of trace gases and particles between the land surface and the troposphere to model simulations at a range of spatial and temporal scales. Dr Ashworth develops 1-D canopy exchange models to explore and improve our knowledge of how these processes interact and applies this knowledge to improve 3-D models. She uses these to investigate the impacts of future change, in particular changes in land use and land cover, on air quality, climate, and society.
