Responsible for various projects related to the simulation of regional air quality, especially as it is affected by the emission of pollutants from energy conversion technology within the South Coast Air Basin. Focus also included simulation of the effects on air quality forecasts with the continued development of scientific understanding of the chemical interactions that occur between and within various species emitted to and produced in the urban airshed. Areas of particular research focus included:  Effects on regional air quality due to the biogenic emissions of amines and methane sulfonic acid (MSA). These species are believed to have a critical role in the formation of particulate matter in the South Coast Air Basin region. This is an inter-departmental project with cooperation from the department of Chemistry; in particular, this project is a collaboration with the AirUCI Organized Research Unit. - Related research regarding sensitivity analysis in formulation of chemical kinetic models.
