Our research group focuses on understanding the impacts of atmospheric particles, like mineral dust and smoke aerosols, on our environment and the climate. It is important for us to study these atmospheric particles because they directly impact the air quality around us and because they contribute to the uncertainties in our understanding of how the climate will change in the future.
