The main research interest of the Environmental Optics Laboratory is the study of the effects that anthropogenic and natural particulates suspended and transported in the atmosphere (aerosols) have on Earth's climate and air quality. The net effect on climate from greenhouse gases, aerosols, and clouds is a complex integral that is . . .

Where do the highest energy cosmic rays come from? Why do nanoscopic particles have such macroscopic energies? What kind of astrophysical or cosmological process can accelerate or create such particles? The phenomenon of ultrahigh-energy cosmic rays is the single largest departure from thermal equilibrium of anything anyone has ever seen in . . .

My current research primarily focuses on addressing some of the fundamental challenges associated with nanoscience. Specifically, this research tries to answer some of the open questions pertaining to the electron (both charge and spin) transfer process involving nanoscale junction in a non-equilibrium condition using quantum many body
