Research and professional activities

Research interests

physico-chemical properties of aerosols

indoor air quality and health impacts of aerosols

nanoparticles in the environment

environment - society interactions

Current research

Physico-chemical properties of aerosols The role played by airborne particles in atmospheric processes, aerosol optical properties and, in particular their involvement in global warming, environmental impact of oil fires, urban air quality, air quality management.

Indoor air quality and health impacts of aerosolsMany air pollutants which are considered important in ambient air are also found, often at higher concentrations, in indoor air. Since a greater proportion of time is spend indoors than outdoors people are far more exposed to pollution indoors than outdoors. The following research is currently underway or has just been completed:

Characterisation of indoor/outdoor pollution.

Bioaerosols in the environmentNikoletta Grydaki;Athar Nasir;Dr Robert Ferguson

Determination of indoor air quality in Pakistan

Nanoparticles in the environment

Impact of nanoparticles on the environmentWael Obaid

Nanoparticles and their impact on the bioremediation of crude oil hydrocarbons in aquatic systems

Uptake and toxicity of nanoparticles by to plants Wael Obaid

Environment society interactionsThis is a developing research area and considers not only historical analysis of air pollution but also the impact of current levels of air pollution on society. The following research is currently underway or has just been completed:

Air pollution and social deprivation

Air pollution and the press in 19th century Britain

Impact of sport on the environment
