Research

Our group is engaged in research across three general themes outlined briefly below. We are experimental physical chemists interested in the reactive chemistry of combustion, photoactivation and atmospheres.

Our experimental platforms deploy pulsed lasers, optics, ion-trap mass spectrometers, optical spectrometers and more. See the Publications page for more details.

  • Microdroplet generation and aerosol chemistry – new techniques to probe chemistry in microdroplet domains
