Research area: Atmospheric environmental chemistry, Aerosol chemistry, Mass spectrometry techniques

Our research aims to advance our understanding of the oxidation chemistry in the atmosphere and how this chemistry interacts with air quality and climate. Our research interests include: 1) kinetics and mechanisms of oxidation of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and formation, growth, and aging of secondary organic aerosols (SOA) in the atmosphere; 2) heterogeneous/multiphase chemistry of aerosol particles; and 3) development and characterization of the state-of-the-art mass spectrometric techniques for real-time measurement of atmospheric organic and inorganic compositions.

Currently, we are particularly interested in exploring fundamental mechanisms of atmospheric oxidation and particle formation from biogenic emissions and the atmospheric fate of short-lived reactive components in SOA.
