Neil Page is a PhD student in the Centre for Atmospheric Chemistry at the University of Wollongong. His research is in the field of atmospheric chemistry, with a focus on atmospheric mercury and its dominant oxidant bromine monoxide (BrO) over the Southern Ocean and Antarctic sea-ice region. He uses atmospheric spectroscopy, in situ observations, and biogeochemical models to answer questions related to interactions between the ocean, ice and atmosphere in driving mercury and BrO cycling in the Antarctic sea-ice region. Prior to starting his PhD, he completed a Masters of Research on evaluating global biogeochemical mercury modeling in the Australian context. The project found that model simulations tend to overestimate observed mercury concentrations, that Australian sites are heavily influenced by oceanic emissions and that Australia may provide a net sink for atmospheric mercury.
