My interests are in aerosol physics and in the engineering control of airborne pollutants. This work is concerned with: (1) factors that affect the generation and release of air contaminants, (2) methods to measure the concentrations and properties of air contaminants in outdoor air and indoor air, and (3) engineered methods to remove contaminants from waste gas streams.
