I am a researcher at the University of Edinburgh working on lidar for atmospheric remote sensing, especially of greenhouse gases. I use MATLAB for general data processing and graphing as well as more specific tasks. These include plotting data from the High-Resolution Transmisison (HITRAN) Database, reading spectra from spectroradiometers, ray tracing optical systems and simulating electronic circuits with the Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis (SPICE).
Professional Interests: Optics, Environmental science
