Dr Emma Ferranti

Associate Lecturer

Research Overview

Emma has research interests in air quality and synoptic climatology. She is currently working as a Research Associate on the Breathe Easier project, which centres on the adaption and redesign of a directional passive air pollution sampler so that it may be deployed to measure particulates, ammonia, and radioactive dusts, within a regulatory context. Emma has previous air quality experience as a research consultant at AEA Energy & Environment. For her PhD Emma combined synoptic climatological and GIS techniques to investigate climatic processes and patterns in upland Cumbria, NW England, and on the sub-polar island of South Georgia.
