Research Interests

My research consists primarily of field measurements of aerosol composition and hygroscopicity with the PILS and DASH-SP, respectively. I also dapple with the AMS, PILS-TOC, and filter sampling. Current work involves discerning sources of the carbonaceous component of Los Angeles aerosol, and determining the effect of varying composition on aerosol hygroscopicity in urban air.

I also like long walks on the beach, growing my own food, making music, and riding pulses of oceanic energy from far-away storms.
