I develop research to characterize aerosol properties (optical, physical and chemical properties) to study their life cycle within the atmosphere from the aerosol formation thought their interactions with clouds.


  • Link between physical, chemical and optical properties
  • Effect of water uptake on optical properties
  • Synergy between in-situ and remote sensing measurements
  • Modeling of aerosol aging (M7)
