Research Interests

Atmospheric Reactive Nitrogen, Environmental Chemistry, Chemistry of the Indoor Environment, and Analytical Instrumentation

Research is focused on the environmental chemistry of reactive nitrogen molecules that undergo heterogeneous exchange in the atmosphere, including agricultural and 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 of 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.
