Research Interests

· General interest and current studies are related to atmospheric aerosols, their composition, non-ideal thermodynamic behavior and the calculation of such liquid particle mixtures including organic-inorganic interactions.

· Thermodynamic modeling of organic-inorganic mixtures related to atmospheric aerosols to predict water activity and phase stability (AIOMFAC model based on the LIFAC model).

· Modeling liquid-liquid phase separations and phase stabilities in organic-inorganic aerosols at thermodynamic equilibrium (LLE).

· Computing the gas/particle partitioning including potential liquid-liquid phase separations of mixed organic-inorganic aerosols.

· Simulating the microphysical structure of single crystal ice Ih surfaces (a kinetic Monte Carlo model).

· Developing efficient algorithms and computer programs using Fortran 90 / 95.
