Professor Wexler’s research focuses on measuring and modeling the atmospheric dynamics and health effects of air pollution. Members of Dr. Wexler’s laboratory are developing new instruments for measuring air pollution and meteorology related to air pollution transport, new mathematical techniques for modeling air pollution dynamics and thermodynamics, and new exposure paradigms for understanding the neurological and cardiopulmonary health effects of air pollution. The Air Quality Research Center operates the IMPROVE air monitoring network for the National Parks Service and performs chemical analysis for the Chemical Speciation Network for the Environmental Protection Agency.
