Welcome to the ASE Laboratory!

The broad theme of our work is to understand key processes that drive the properties, distribution, and evolution of aerosols (also known as particulate matter), and to elucidate and quantify the effects of aerosols on air quality, biogeochemical cycle, hydrological cycle, and climate. The overall goal is to obtain a predictive understanding of aerosol properties, processes, and effects to address the grand challenge of actionable projection of future climate and environment.

Our research consists of development of cutting-edge sensors and instruments, field observation using these advanced sensors and instruments, and analyses of data making use of a variety of theoretical and numerical models.
