His research is briefly summarized below.

Research Area

1. Global Climate and Chemistry Modeling:

- Developed a linking tool (coupled model) between the “Harvard GEOS-Chem” chemistry and transport model and “NCAR CCSM-3” a 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 families” and “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 Species:

- 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 ozone and PM-2.5 data analysis

3. Environmental assessment modeling

- 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.
