Speakers

Alla Zelenyuk-Imre
Senior Research Scientist @Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Dr. Zelenyuk (Ph.D. in Chemical Physics, including Chemistry and Physics of Combustion, Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Russia) is a senior research scientist (2003 – present) in the Earth and Biological Sciences Directorate at PNNL. Before joining PNNL she conducted her research at Brookhaven National Laboratory, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Semenov Institute of Chemical Physics, Moscow, Russia. Dr. Zelenyuk has over 25 years of experience in aerosol science, single particle mass spectrometry, and development and application of unique tools for real-time separation and multimodal characterization of individual small particles. Her research is focused on improving our understanding of the processes that control the formation and transformation of atmospheric aerosol particles; characterizing the emissions by new-generation engines that operate on renewable fuels, and particles generated by laser ablation of metals and contaminated soils.
Gourihar Kulkarni
Earth Scientist @Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Swarup China
Chemist @Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Dr. Swarup China is a chemist at EMSL. His significant research areas include atmospheric aerosol properties and processes, atmospheric aerosol chemistry, heterogeneous ice nucleation, and aerosol-cloud interactions. He utilizes field studies, laboratory measurements, and off-line analysis with multi-modal analytical techniques, such as microscopy, spectroscopy, and high-resolution mass spectrometry to study atmospheric processes and interactions between ecosystems. China also studies the chemical aging of atmospheric particles through multi-phase atmospheric chemistry and investigates the effect of physicochemical properties of complex atmospheric particles on aerosol microphysical properties and cloud development. He aims to better understand the physical chemistry of atmospheric particles controlling aerosol-cloud interactions.
