His research is briefly summarized below.

Research Area

1. Earth System Modeling (Global Climate and Chemistry Modeling):

- Currently working with an aersol-chemistry module as part of United Kingdom Chemistry and Aerosol (UKCA) included in the HadGEM,  a configuration of the UK Met Office Unified Model (UM).

- Developed a linking tool (one-way coupled global Climate-Chemistry model) between the Harvard GEOS-Chemchemistry and transport model and NCAR CCSM-3a climate model

- Developed the UIUC 2.5-D chemical-radiative-transport model and the UIUC radiative-transfer model

- Evaluated and inter-compared state-of-the-art global Chemistry and Transport Models (CTMs), NCAR MOZART familiesand NASA GEOS-Combo, relative to observational datasets

- Assessing past and future environmental changes in ozone and PMs related to climate changes (using a global Climate-Chemistry model and a regional WRF-Chem model)

2. Sciences on Atmospheric Chemical and Aerosol Environment:

- Investigate atmospheric lifetimes and impacts of replacement compounds on ozone (pursuant to Article 6 of the Montreal Protocol) through the numerical calculation of Ozone Depletion Potentials (ODPs)

- Investigate direct and indirect effects of replacement compounds on ozone and climate through the numerical calculations of Radiative Forcings and Global Warming Potentials (GWPs)

- Study the long-term variability of stratospheric tracers associated with wave activities and residual circulation

- Investigate the interaction of atmospheric dynamical processes with atmospheric chemistry

- Perform extensive spatio-temporal analyses of O3(ozone) and PM-2.5 data analysis

- Study and apply the thermodynamics of gas-to-particle conversion to form PM-2.5 over the East Asia

3. Environmental assessment modeling in outdoor air:

- Assess environmental impacts of new sources such as power plants and industrial complexes using atmospheric dispersion models (AERMOD and CALPUFF)

- Assess radionuclides (Krypton-85 and radio-xenon) transport to discreminate clandestine source of plutonium seperation. Xenon isotopes will be assessed soon
