Research Areas Outdoor and indoor air quality air pollution environmental chemistry field measurements atmospheric aerosols climate change

Peter DeCarlo, an associate professor of environmental health and engineering, studies atmospheric air pollution with applications to ambient air quality, including atmospheric aerosols and emissions from anthropogenic activities including natural gas development. He has published extensively in the areas of atmospheric aerosols (particulate matter), air quality, and climate and performed air quality measurements all over the world, and visited with many Congressional offices to discuss climate change and air quality issues.

DeCarlo received his PhD in Atmospheric Science from the University of Colorado and earned a postdoctoral fellowship at the Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland and an AAAS Science Policy Fellowship in Washington D.C.
