Our research focuses on quantifying and understanding the processes that control the atmospheric evolution of the physical, chemical and optical properties of aerosols. We conduct both laboratory and field studies in a highly collaborative environment.

Students interested in working as part of the Cappa Group can apply to either the Civil & Environmental Engineering program or the Atmospheric Science Graduate Program.
