Research Interests

  • Atmospheric chemistry and Physics with emphasis on the oxidation capacity of the atmosphere (both remote and polluted), physicochemical aerosol properties and their climatic role.
  • Global biogeochemical cycles of carbon, nitrogen, phosphorus and sulfur and their role on climate.
  • Air sea- exchange
  • Chemical kinetics
  • Environmental Analytical chemistry
  • Observations of key constituents of the atmosphere (greenhouse gases, aerosols).
