  • Dr. Bililign with Co-PI Fiddler received a $488,281 three year grant from the National Science Foundation, Atmospheric Chemistry program to study optical and chemical properties of biomass burning aerosols. The group will conduct a laboratory study to investigate how the chemical and optical properties of biomass burning aerosols (soot) change as they age in the atmosphere and how they impact global and regional climate systems. Considering the extensive use of biomass fuel in the developing world and increased occurrence of wild fires in the US, such controlled laboratory studies are of significant importance and will aid remote and satellite measurements. Some of the measurements will also be done at Prof. Surratt, Lab at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Gillings School of Global Public Health Department of Environmental Sciences & Engineering through contracts.
  • Upcoming  Physics Junior and REU student Khalil McMillan will travel to Baltimore to attend the March Meeting of the American Physical Society from March 13-18. Khalil is presenting a poster and Bililign is giving an oral talk. Links to the talks are:
