The Evans Research Group is a member the Southern Ontario Centre for Atmospheric Aerosol Research (SOCAAR) , an interdisciplinary centre for the study of air quality, with a focus on how aerosols impact human health and the environment. Focus areas include the development and application of high time resolution instruments in field work, such as single particle mass spectrometry, and the use of receptor modeling for sources identification and characterization.
