Fields of interest
Understanding the microphysical effects of atmospheric aging on the optical properties of soot and related aerosols; development of model aerosol systems to elucidate the effects of encapsulation on aerosol optical properties; contribution of aerosol radiative forcing to global climate change; the development of novel optical-based instrumentation for aerosol and chemical detection.
Description of scientific projects
Current research is centered on the study of the evolution of carbonaceous aerosol optical properties with a focus on the role of the BC mixing state on these properties.
