Research Interests

  1. Interactions among climate, atmospheric chemistry, air quality, and land use/land cover
  2. Impacts of global change on atmospheric chemistry and long-range transport of air pollution
  3. Anthropogenic perturbations to the atmosphere and implications for environmental sustainability
  4. Atmosphere-biosphere interactions, especially in the context of global change
  5. Impacts of aerosols on the global hydrological cycle
