Atmospheric Reactive Nitrogen, Environmental Chemistry, Chemistry of the Indoor Environment Analytical Instrumentation
Research is focused on the environmental chemistry of reactive nitrogen molecules that undergo heterogeneous exchange in the atmosphere, including indoor environments. Custom-built field apparatuses are used to track pollutants undergoing exchange by a wide variety of mechanisms, coupled to real-time atmospheric instruments or offline gas and liquid separation techniques. Both approaches often involve the use mass spectrometry. The development of new analytical platforms allows new questions to be asked regarding the chemistry and ultimate fate of reactive nitrogen pollution from microscopic to global scales.
