Areas of Interest: Characterization of the chemical mechanisms in the atmosphere that influence regional air quality and global climate change

Much of his group's current research is focused on improving our understanding of the influence of biogenic emissions and their oxidation products on the chemistry of the atmosphere. This research involves laboratory studies of the kinetics of important atmospheric reactions, theoretical studies of the reaction mechanisms, and field measurements of the atmosphere in both urban and forested environments.
