Our group investigates the atmospheric composition and chemistry of the global atmosphere and how this impacts air quality, climate, and environmental health. Our research focuses on biosphere-atmosphere interactions, aerosol sources and transformations, and the connections between atmospheric chemistry and climate. We use observations of the atmosphere from all scales (in situ to satellite) with global models of chemistry and climate to study these questions.
