Research Interests:
  • Atmospheric aerosols, sources and processing
  • Urban air quality/Health Effects
  • Mechanisms and conditions for new particle formation by homogeneous nucleation
  • Particle growth processes
  • These interests are investigated by devolpment of new instruments, (e.g., the particle into liquid sampler, PILS) and participating in numerous field studies
