Air pollution is a combination of gases and particles directly emitted from sources, such as vehicles or industry, and emissions that react in the atmosphere to produce pollutants such as ozone or particulate matter. I simulate atmospheric reactions of emissions such as vehicle exhaust and compounds emitted from trees in the laboratory to study what products are formed and how they form. My research provides evidence to suggest that the products formed from reactions of direct emissions in the atmosphere must be considered to understand the true impact of the emission source on air quality.
