Atmospheric trace gas and aerosol measurements to address questions of atmospheric chemistry-climate processes and feedbacks.

Current Topics

Chemical and dynamical processes regulating the aerosol abundance and properties in the stratospheric aerosol layer.
In situ and remote sensing measurements of wildfires and their emissions using small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS).
Measurement of water vapor, ozone, and cirrus clouds in the tropical tropopause layer to study the processes controlling transport of water to the stratosphere.
