Atmospheric chemistry group
Atmospheric pollution is a major contributor to global warming, and may have detrimental health effects on humans in high concentrations. As population densities increase and new industries and consumer products are introduced to the market, atmospheric research is essential to maintain habitable environments.
As a member of the atmospheric chemistry group you will be working with state-of-the-art instrumentation to monitor natural and/or anthropogenic emissions to the atmosphere. By considering specific groups of chemicals present, the group aims to determine the specific sources of contaminants.
