My research group is interested in the chemistry of atmospheric particles, specifically the chemical processes that impact public health and climate change. We are developing new techniques that further our understanding of the transport, transformation and chemical fate of environmental contaminants in addition to examining the chemical kinetics and thermodynamics of reactions that occur at the surface of atmospheric particles. This research will help us understand how the composition of particles and environment impact the ability of particles to form clouds; it will also provide much needed information to protect the environment and mitigate the impact of atmospheric pollutants.
