My research is mainly focused on understanding the chemical formation and evolution of secondary organic aerosol (SOA) in the Earth’s atmosphere. I use and develop advanced mass spectrometric techniques to chemically characterize both ambient aerosol and laboratory-generated SOA. With this approach, I have helped to elucidate the chemical pathways leading to SOA formation from the atmospheric oxidation of biogenic and anthropogenic precursors. I have also helped to further progress our knowledge on the impact of anthropogenic pollutants in organic aerosol formation, especially through the characterization of heterogeneous processes. In addition, I am mainly focusing my research on the elucidation of the chemical processes involved in the formation and growth of newly formed particles in the atmosphere.

Accordingly, the topics we are addressing are:

  • Atmospheric chemistry
  • Analytical chemistry
  • New particle formation
  • Gas phase chemistry of highly oxygenated organic molecules (HOMs) and radicals
