Atmospheric chemistry, exposure to air pollution, instrumentation development
I am currently developing a method for external calibration of an Aerosol Mass Spectrometer, by measuring aerosol-phase total reactive nitrogen and carbon (Nr and Cy). The instrumentation measuring Nr and Cy has been characterized previously (Stockwell et al. AMT 2018). One objective of this project is to better understand and quantify the various aspects of aerosol mass spectrometry such as collection effiency for different atmospherically-relevant compounds.
