Prof Lucy Carpenter

A round-the-world tour of atmospheric chemistry

Award-winning chemist, Professor Lucy Carpenter, surveys atmospheric chemistry around the world: from the Uintah basin and the tropical Atlantic to Beijing and London, looking at the relationships and feedbacks between chemistry and climate.

Head of Physical Chemistry at the University of York, she is an Atmospheric Chemist, specializing in the chemistry of the clean marine atmosphere and in natural emissions of volatile organic compounds. In 2015 she was awarded the Royal Society’s  Rosalind Franklin Award for her scientific achievement, her suitability as a role model and her project proposal to promote women in STEM.
