research overview

  • My research program is broadly focused on the formation, evolution, and environmental impact of carbonaceous particles under a wide range of conditions. This work involves studies of soot formation during combustion, black carbon and wildfire emissions and evolution in the atmosphere, and particle synthesis under controlled conditions. It additionally entails development and deployment of laser- and X-ray-based diagnostics and instrumentation for combustion and atmospheric applications.
