My main research interests are focused on atmospheric physic and chemistry. The aim is to understand the processes that control the budgets of atmospheric aerosols and gases that play a key role in the context of global climate change and in regional air quality. The main tools adopted are: 3-D computer models of atmospheric processes that affect chemical species, and data from both in-situ and remote- sensing instruments.
