Area(s) of Expertise
The goal of my research group at NC State University is to advance understanding of air pollution and its role in environmental and human systems through modeling and data analysis. A common theme throughout our work is the development of computational frameworks to simulate interactions between air quality and socio-environmental systems. We leverage high-performance computing and different modeling approaches, including first-principles and statistical models, to inform environmental decision-making. Our current research includes efforts to study air quality connections to wildland fire, power systems, climate change, public health, and environmental policy.
