I have moved to the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at UCLA in January 2016. I will keep updating this website while the new one, hosted at UCLA, is being developed.


Research in our group focuses on the atmospheric boundary layer, its turbulent nature and its interaction with the Earth's surface. Our approach combines field experiments, numerical simulations and analytical tools to better understand the dynamics of ABL flows and its complex interaction with the natural envrionment, with particular focus on bringing atmospheric sciences and ecology together. Current topics of interest include atmospheric dispersion of bioaerosols and pollutants, interactions between the atmosphere and plant canopies and the development of better numerical models based on the large-eddy simulation technique for ABL flows. If you have any questions or if you are interested in learning more about our work, do not hesitate to contact me.
