Sean Hartery completed a B.Sc. in Physics (Hons.) with a Minor in Mathematics at Dalhousie University in 2015. During this time, Sean also worked as a research assistant for the Atmospheric Processes and Composition Group (APCG) investigating environmental trends in methane emissions from Alaskan wetlands. After leaving the APCG, Sean joined the McDonald group at the University of Canterbury, where he completed a PhD. His thesis was titled "Aerosol Cloud Interactions over the Southern Ocean." In this work, a comprehensive set of in situ field observations collected in the Ross Sea were analyzed to understand how sea spray aerosol particles directly, and indirectly, influence the regional climate of the Southern Ocean. In 2020, Sean rejoined the APCG as a research assistant. In the wake of COVID-19, he has helped design, run and maintain a Filtering Facepiece Respirator (FFR) testing facility in collaboration with the Health and Environment Research Centre. In 2021, Sean will commence postdoctoral work with Dalhousie's Automated Wave Tank (DAWT) to study the effects of surfactants on the air-sea flux and hygroscopicity of sea spray particles.
