My research focuses on the study of the natural and anthropogenic chemical species involved in atmospheric processes and the analysis of their kinetics, thermodynamics, characterization, and modeling. I have demonstrated expertise in mathematical modeling as well as the design and operation of a range of reactors including indoor chambers, outdoor photochemical smog chambers, flow reactors. The state-of-the-art Atmospheric Photochemical Outdoor Reactor (UF-APHOR), among four worldwide, is used to simulate atmospheric photochemical aging of gaseous compounds and various aerosol sourced from combustion, kinetic reactions and water (fresh water, wetland, and ocean). These various studies have benefited research in other fields including the study of how particulate matter impacts climate change and human health.
