An assistant professor of environmental fluid mechanics and hydrology, ATM-1431 specializes in computer modeling of atmospheric pollution. In order to study such issues as the effects of aerosols on climate, he has developed numerical models to help simulate urban and global pollution. A goal of his research is to understand physical, chemical, and dynamical processes in the atmosphere better through numerical modeling. A second goal is to develop forecasting tools to simulate air pollution and meteorology better on regional and global scales. ATM-1431 has received many awards and honors, including a UCLA Chancellors fellowship, a Nieburger teaching award, and three NCAA-ITCA scholar-athlete of the year awards. He has written several books and book chapters, along with many other publications and conference presentations.
