Maximilien Desservettaz (Co-Chair)

Maximilien Desservettaz is a postdoctoral research fellow in atmospheric science at the Cyprus Institute since January 2022, after having worked as a technical research expert since joining the institute in October 2019. He received his PhD in atmospheric chemistry from the University of Wollongong, Australia, his BSc and MChem in chemistry from the University of Leeds, UK, and his DUT in chemistry from the University of Rouen, France. His PhD thesis focused on improving emission estimates of Australian forest and savanna fires.

His current research focuses on volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emissions and chemistry in the urban environment using state-of-the-art PTR-ToF-MS technology. He is also involved in a number of research projects in partnership with CyI’s Unmanned Systems Research Laboratory.


Max has now attended four in-person and one virtual IGAC(-iCACGP) conferences. He was a member of the early career program organising committee for the 2018 iCACGP-IGAC conference.
