single aerosol particles
heat and mass transfer
Areas of expertise
Research in the Particle Dynamics Group is focussed on understanding the chemical and physical dynamics of single aerosol particles.
Aerosols influence health, visibility, and climate and find technological application in the delivery of drugs to the lungs, the engineering of nanostructures through spray drying, and the delivery of fuels for combustion. We are developing laser techniques to manipulate and control single particles and optical techniques to probe their dynamics.
