My research is motivated by the effects of atmospheric aerosols on climate, environment and human health. I have more than 30 years of experience in atmospheric aerosol science (measurement technology, emissions, particle formation, transformation and dynamics, particle hygroscopic growth and aerosol-cloud interactions, long-range transport, source-receptor relationships, particle deposition in the human respiratory tract). My research includes a combination of laboratory experiments, instrument development, field intensive campaign as well as long-term aerosol measurements at various sites, process modeling of aerosol dynamics and chemical composition, and implementation of aerosol processes in climate and air quality models.
