Fields of work

Modeling aerosol-cloud-climate interactions on different spatial scales and to understand how a better representation of the processes can result in accurate radiative forcing estimates. Understanding the intercontinental transport of pollutants, both natural and anthropogenic from satellites.

Research interests

  • Aerosol-cloud-climate interactions and the radiative forcing effects
  • Long range transport of pollutants and the role of meteorology
  • Aerosols from explosive volcanic eruptions; their chemical transformations, long range transport and climate impact.
  • Satellite analysis of optical properties of different aerosol species.

Special competences

Global and regional scale modeling, aerosol-cloud and aerosol-radiation interactions, satellite based monitoring of air pollutants and their coupling with meteorology in the high latitude regions including Arctic.
