Dr. Wood’s research focuses on quantifying emissions, concentrations, and atmospheric transformations of airborne pollutants both outdoors and indoors. Pollutants of interest include nitrogen oxides, ozone, and secondary organic aerosol (particulate matter). Dr. Wood is preparing a new sensor (based on cavity attenuated phase shift spectroscopy) for the detection of the nitrate radical (NO3) and dinitrogen pentoxide (N2O5) for use in both chamber studies and ambient measurements.
