Research Interests
Research in the Bertram group is designed to provide direct experimental and observation based constraints for a host of chemical processes. These include:

- The time evolution of the source-sink relationship for greenhouse gases.

- The heterogeneous processing of reactive trace gases.

- The interaction of the atmosphere, biosphere and the oceans.
Primary Research Area

Outreach Activities
Actively promote diversity in higher education through acting as a mentor for female graduate students, one from an underrepresented group. Further, I actively encourage their participation in on-campus groups that promote diversity and scientific advancement of undergraduate students from underrepresented groups.

As part of our Phase I, Chemical Center for Innovation, my group participates in an array of outreach activities at local elementary and high schools. These activities target traditionally underrepresented groups within the sciences. More Information: http://caice.ucsd.edu/Outreach.html

Actively participate in Socrates program by giving seminars, and providing research support for projects. More Information: http://sciencebridge.ucsd.edu/programs/socrates/who-we-are/2012-2013
