Research and Teaching Interests

Our group is working on developing techniques to measure aerosol composition (metals and organics) and toxicity (oxidative potential and mutagenicity). By linking aerosol composition to toxicity we can better understand not only how much aerosol pollution there is but the detrimental effects it can have. San Bernardino has been designated as a community of interest to reduce emissions causing air pollution issues.

In addition, we are collaborating with NASA researchers to analyze airborne measurements of air quality to improve satellite measurements of pollution in the United States (NASA DISCOVER-AQ mission) and South Korea (NASA KORUS-AQ mission).
