Sarah Hörst’s primary research interest is atmospheric chemistry. She is particularly interested in the complex organic chemistry occurring in the atmosphere of Titan. She is also interested in complex organics elsewhere in the solar system (and the universe!), whether they are produced in an atmosphere or on a surface.
