Accepting PhD Students
Roy Harrison has carried out pioneering research in: airborne particle concentrations and numbers in the UK; characterisation of emission and impact of ultrafine particulate matter; measurement and modelling of exposure to air toxics and verification by biomarker; high time-resolution chemical fingerprinting of particulate emissions from the steel industry; and the relationship of ultrafine and fine particles in indoor and outdoor respiratory health. Professor Harrison's recent research projects include: Artificial chemical ageing of ambient atmospheric aerosol Novel compact after treatment systems for simultaneous reduction of diesel engine NOx, PM, CO and HC emissions Use of chemical composition and molecular markers to infer the sources of airborne particulate matter Understanding the fate of traffic-generated particles Professor Harrison has successfully supervised at least 30 doctoral researchers working in his areas of interest.
