Current Research Activities
Working on a couple of research projects focused on air pollution and climate change issues, crop residue burning, greenhouse gas emissions, and human health. Current project is focused on emission of short lived climate pollutants and impacts from Agriculture, Residential, and Waste sector to assess current mitigation measures and future opportunities.
