Chris Hansen

Spectroscopy and Reaction Dynamics

Lecturer & ARC DECRA Fellow at UNSW Sydney focusing on understanding the true, long-term impacts of new industrial gases following their emission into the atmosphere.

I am also interested in fundamental chemical reaction dynamics & spectroscopy, as well as implications for interstellar chemistry and the chemistry of extraterrestrial atmospheres. I have a large collaborative network throughout Europe and in China and regularly access international facilities such as free electron lasers and synchrotrons. I did my PhD with Prof. Adam Trevitt at the University of Wollongong studying the spectroscopy and reactions of ions in the gas phase, and have since worked at the University of Bristol (UK) and Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (China) studying chemical reaction dynamics.
