Dr. Assaf is a research scientist at the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) and an affiliate with the NOAA Chemical Sciences Laboratory. His current research at NOAA focuses on gas phase chemistry of peroxy radical RO2 in the marine environment, in particular the oxidation of dimethyl sulfide in low NOX environment. A pulsed laser photolysis flow-tube reactor coupled to a high-resolution time-of-flight chemical-ionization mass spectrometer (HR-ToF-CIMS) detection has been developed and operated for gas phase laboratory kinetic studies. Measurement of rate coefficients, identification and measurement of the yields of reaction products are carried out for a better understanding of reaction mechanisms.
