We conduct laboratory experiments of aerosols to quantify their spectral absorption, hygroscopic and microphysical properties. We also formulate various modeling tools to improve process-level understanding (e.g. role of mixing state, brown carbon) of these properties including new particle formation.

In addition, we are conducting comprehensive analyses to improve our understanding of physical and optical properties of aerosols over the Indo-Gangetic Basin. This involves aerosol-related data from various platforms including long-term ground based and satellite, as well as intensive short- term campaign. Our ultimate goal is to accurately represent aerosol effects in the regional climate-chemistry models that are used to estimate the climate and health impacts of aerosols over the Indo-Gangetic Basin. We are also interested in the development of new techniques for measurement of aerosol absorption. 

I am also associated with  Centre for Environmental Science &  Engineering.
