Research Interests: 

We are currently focusing our efforts on three main areas of research:

  • Charge- and proton-transfer phenomena in molecular clusters
  • Heterogeneous atmospheric chemistry mediated by solid aerosol particles
  • Real-time environmental mass spectrometry

An important facet of our work is the development of new experimental approaches using a variety of instrumentation, including laser sources. We often employ computational methods to supplement the experimental results. We are particularly interested in systems that are relevant to environmental and atmospheric chemistry. The diverse nature of our work calls for a multidisciplinary approach and much of the research is carried out in collaboration with colleagues in chemistry, physics and engineering. We also benefit from our association with the Optical Science and Technology Center (OSTC) and the Center for Global and Regional Environmental Research (CGRER).
