Fields of work

Chemical mechanism development, aerosol physics, process analysis and process identification, and their applications to 3-dim. tropospheric modelling, air quality and assessment modelling. Urban air quality assessment and urban planning.

Research interests

  • Atmospheric transformation and dispersion of aerosol particles emitted from combustion and mobile transport sources
  • Chemistry-transport models on the urban scale, for gases and aerosols
  • Exposure to air pollution and health effects

Special competences

Experience with leading projects involving industry partners. Programming and modelling of physical and chemical systems using numerical mathematics.
