McLaren's Group 2016

Professor Robert McLaren is the Director of the Centre for Atmospheric Chemistry. He is also past-Chair of the Analytical Chemistry Division, the largest division of the Chemical Institute of Canada.

His general research interests are in the development of new analytical methods for probing the chemical composition of the polluted atmosphere (gas and particulate phase), and to further our understanding of emission sources, transport of pollutants and their precursors and chemical and physical transformation processes in the atmosphere. Research studies are conducted through laboratory based investigations (controlled atmospheres) as well as through participation in field studies in the real atmosphere (chaotic atmosphere).
