Dr. Thomas Berkemeier

Research: My research deals with the mathematical description of multiphase processes in the atmosphere and in the human body. In my research team, we develop kinetic models and conduct experiments with the goal of understanding atmospherically- and health-relevant chemical and physical processes at and across interfaces. Special focal points are oxidation chemistry, gas-particle partitioning and the implications of a viscous phase state.

Postdoctoral Researcher

Dr. Eleni Dovrou

Research: I examine the health effects of atmospheric aerosols focusing on the redox chemistry of their constituents. Using EPR spectroscopy, liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry, I investigate the response of surrogate solutions, mimicking the composition of the human body, upon exposure to aerosols. The analysis of the results is conducted using kinetic modelling.

Ph.D Students

Hyungu Kang

Research: I study the formation of secondary organic aerosol (SOA) by combining environmental chamber experiments with detailed computational models. The chamber experiments are performed at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST).

Jake Wilson

Research: I use computational modelling tools to study air pollution at the molecular and global scale. Specifically, I study the chemical interactions taking place on aerosol particles and in the lung, as well as the long-range transport of pollutants in the atmosphere.
