My research tries to answer the question of how the emissions from man-made aerosol sources evolve in the atmosphere and how they affect climate and air quality. This involves detailed charaterization of the emitted aerosol with latest methods, experimental simulation of the atmospheric dilution and oxidation processes, and numerical modeling of the physical and chemical transformations the aerosol experiences in its life-cycle. We use atmospheric mass spectrometric methods (CI-TOF-CIMS and FIGAERO-CIMS) in emission and mobile settings.
I lead TAU activities in the Atmosphere and Climate Competence Center Flagship project. I teach the courses Aerosol Physics, Aerosol Measurement Techniques, Aerosol Modelling and Climate.now.
