Research Topic

Chemical Transport Modeling of trace gases and aerosols, Radiative effect of aerosols on photochemistry and climate. My main research interests focus on the interactions between atmospheric chemistry, transport, and climate process. To address scientific issues related with above my group develop and use global and regional chemical transport models coupled with a general circulation model.
