My research focuses on the physics and properties of clouds, particularly on the role of particulate matter (such as dust and soot), known as aerosols, in determining the properties of clouds. As human activities have modified the properties of clouds by increasing the amount of aerosol in the atmosphere, so a major part of my work involves quantifying how these human-caused changes in cloud properties affect the climate.
