Professor Rood specializes in the use of physical and chemical principles to characterize the optical and chemical properties of ambient aerosols related to opacity, visibility, and climate change. These techniques use extractive-based and remote-based sampling techniques. He also pioneers the development of effective methods and materials to separate hazardous materials from gas streams and the separation and recovery of organic vapors/gases from gas streams for reuse in a sustainable manner.
