Affiliation:
Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS), Potsdam, Germany

Theme/Title of talk:
Understanding atmospheric processes and mitigation of air pollution in the Himalayan region through new Nepal Emissions Inventory (NEEMI)

Main research field:
(i) Comprehensive understanding of physical and chemical processes, impacts and mitigation of atmospheric pollution in the Himalayan region through combining atmospheric observations (ground-based, aerial and space-borne platforms), emission inventories and simulations using the regional chemistry-transport models (e.g., WRF-Chem); (ii) online measurements of physical, chemical and optical properties of the atmospheric aerosols, in particular black carbon (BC),

Research Interest:
(1) Interest: Understanding the scientific and societal knowns and unknowns (e.g., physical and chemical processes, impacts, societal factors, including individual and collective behavior) about air pollution and co-designing (through engaging key stakeholders) cleaner solutions rooted in sound science and a carefully examined local context (science, technology, policy, regulation, finance, societal factors) in a given city or country or a region, with the Himalayan region as a focus region. (2) Special interest: Role of atmospheric science for sustainability
