Armin Sorooshian
Associate Professor, Chemical and Environmental Engineering
(520) 626-6769
PhD, Chemical Engineering, Caltech, 2008

Armin Sorooshian received his BS from the University of Arizona (Chemical and Environmental Engineering, 2003) and PhD from the California Institute of Technology (Chemical Engineering, 2008). His research focus is on the effect of aerosol particles on the environment, clouds and rainfall, climate, and public health/welfare. A suite of synergistic methods are used for this research, including laboratory experiments, ground and airborne field measurements, modeling, and remote sensing observations.
