Field of Specialisation: Atmospheric Science

I conduct laboratory experiments of aerosols to quantify their spectral absorption, hygroscopic and microphysical properties. We also formulate various modeling tools to improve processlevel understanding

(e.g. role of mixing state, brown carbon) of these properties including new particle formation.

In addition, I am conducting comprehensive analyses to improve our understanding of physical and optical properties of aerosols over the IndoGangetic Basin. This involves aerosolrelated data from various platforms including longterm ground based and satellite, as well as intensive short term campaign. Our ultimate goal is to accurately represent aerosol effects in the regional climatechemistry models that are used to estimate the climate and health impacts of aerosols over the IndoGangetic Basin. I am also interested in the development of new techniques for measurement of aerosol absorption.
