Tara Rasoul is undertaking doctoral research into Urban Climate Effects on Air Pollution and Atmospheric Chemistry. She is using a modelling approach to investigate the effect of nitryl chloride gas upon air quality in terms of ozone formation, and to examine the effect of temperature and NOx emission variation upon the abundance of nitryl chloride in urban climate.

Qualifications

  • B.Sc - Geology, University of Sulaimanyah, Iraq
  • MSc - Climate and Environmental Change, Coventry University, UK
  • PhD - Atmospheric Science and Air Pollution, University of Birmingham, UK
