Bertram Research Group

We are analytical, environmental, and physical chemists with a focus on chemical and physical processes important in the atmosphere. Of special interest are atmospheric aerosol particles and the role they play in urban air pollution, climate change, and atmospheric chemistry.

Ultimately, our goal is to better understand the role of human activity on the Earth’s atmosphere
