My research

Volatile organic compounds (VOC) are ubiquitous in the atmosphere and major precursors for secondary organic aerosol (SOA). Secondary organic aerosol represents a dominant fraction of the tropospheric aerosol and affects climate and health. Still, the current level of understanding of secondary organic aerosol processes is remarkably low compared to other processes in aerosol science. We apply state-of-the-art high resolution mass spectrometry in order to understand secondary organic aerosol formation and properties from both anthropogenic and biogenic precursors.
