About the Organic Aerosol Research Studies Laboratory

Research in the OARS laboratory is focused on understanding the production, chemistry and phase of atmospheric organic particles. Specifically, our projects focus on:

  • Discovering new sources of secondary organic aerosols (SOA) in our atmosphere

  • Understanding the formation and evolution of SOA on a molecular level 

  • Measuring and studying the dynamic phase state of SOA

  • Understanding the chemical role of water vapor in SOA formation and aging

  • Bringing science to K-12 students through targeted podcasts
