Laboratory of atmospheric processes and their impacts (LAPI)

Our lab studies atmospheric processes and their impacts on climate, health and ecosystems through a combination of theory, measurement and modelling. A central focus in our research program is atmospheric particulate matter (aerosols), and studies often combine of observations, theory and modeling. We are involved in the development of aerosol instrumentation, and measurement techniques required to study processes and constrain parameters. Our group develops open-source modules routinely used in air quality and climate models, as well as tools for advanced sensitivity analysis of large codes and model reduction/data discovery through emulation and network analysis. We are also heavily involved in field measurement programs on understanding the climate and health impacts of ambient aerosol.
