Research Interests

Our group consists of analytical, environmental and physical chemists using state-of-the-art instrumentation to study the chemistry of processes involved in environmental change, both on global and on local scales. Emphasis is placed upon understanding these chemical phenomena at a molecular level so that laboratory results can be reliably incorporated into environmental models. Current projects are related to: chemistry of the indoor environment, Arctic chemistry and connections to global warming, the role that aerosol particles play in the chemistry of the atmosphere. More details are given at our research group website.
