Fields of interest: 
Global Climate Change, Impacts of Anthropogenic Aerosols and Greenhouse Gases on Climate, Global Dimming, Radiative Measurements, Climate Analysis

I am generally interested in why and how climate changes. Why our Earth can be a "hothouse" and a "snowball" and how we human beings change our Earth's climate in a way that may affect our daily lives. I pioneered research on "global dimming"
