My research is focused on conducting in-situ measurements of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in order to identify their sources and influences on ozone and secondary organic aerosol formation. To accomplish this, I utilize custom-built gas chromatograph-mass spectrometers (GC-MS) to provide highly speciated chemical measurements of a variety of VOCs aboard research vessels, at ground-sites, and in laboratories. We have the added capability of collecting airborne samples aboard the NOAA WP-3D research aircraft using whole air samplers (WAS).

I am interested in studying the sources and chemical evolution of organic compounds in the atmosphere and their associated affects on air quality and climate. This includes characterizing the primary emissions of organics into the atmosphere from anthropogenic and biogenic sources and understanding the complex oxidation cycles that affect these species.
