Research Interests

Atmospheric Chemistry

Research interests are in the chemistry of air contaminants in the polluted atmosphere, including their sources, transformations and sinks. Developing analytical methods to characterize the organic and inorganic composition of the gaseous and particulate phases of the troposphere. Focus is on the measurement of oxygenated organic species. Research tools include modern instrumental methods of analysis, applied both in the laboratory and in field studies.
