Research Overview

Aerosols comprise a diverse mixture of environmental particles with different compositions, origins, sizes, physical and chemical properties. Chemical, morphological and phase data of ambient particles are of crucial importance for understanding the formation and reaction mechanisms of aerosols, their atmospheric evolution, impact and source apportionment. Obtaining comprehensive information on the chemical composition of atmospheric particulates is very challenging because no single method of analytical chemistry is capable of providing all desired information. In our group, we employ different analytical methods to provide comprehensive information on particle chemistry ranging from microscopic properties of individual particles to advanced chemical characterization of complex molecules comprising particulate matter.
