Welcome to our Research Group!

Air pollution kills – worldwide more than 6 million people per year. In order to reduce concentrations of air pollutants their formation, transformation and atmospheric fate need to be understood. This is the focus of our work. Our research tools include state-of-the science instrumentation used in laboratory experiments and field measurements in indoor and outdoor environments, as well as mathematical modeling. A main goal of our research is to make better-informed recommendations for environmental policies aimed at improving air quality and human health.

We are located in the McKetta Department of Chemical Engineering and the Center for Energy and Environmental Resources at the University of Texas at Austin.

We always welcome interest from highly motivated undergraduate or graduate students to join our group. Please contact Dr. Hildebrandt Ruiz.
