Research Expertise and Interest
global change, air pollution, environmental science, biogeochemistry, atmospheric chemistry, indoor air quality
Atmospheric chemistry, air pollution, biosphere-atmosphere exchange of radiatively and chemically active trace gases, and development and application of novel instrumentation to investigate the organic chemistry of earth’s atmosphere. Field campaigns, controlled laboratory experiments, and modeling activities covering indoor, outdoor, urban, rural, regional, intercontinental, and global scale studies of ozone, aerosols, and their gas phase precursors. Comprehensive research questions include: What controls atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases, volatile organic compounds, photochemical oxidants, and aerosols? How do biological systems interact chemically and physically with earth's atmosphere?
