Research interests

Our group studies the effect of atmospheric particulate matter (aerosols) on air quality and the climate. Our current focus is on the climate warming due to light-absorbing aerosols emitted by combustion sources. We employ techniques based in laboratory experiments as well as large-scale chemical transport and radiative transfer modeling. 

I am looking for motivated graduate students to join our team. Please send me an email if you are interested or if you require further information.
