Dr. Carlton was awarded a grant from the U.S. Army’s Research Office to host a workshop on designing an artificial intelligence system capable of predicting multiphase chemistry with human-expert skill. Stay tuned for findings from the September meeting at the Beckman Center of the National Academy of Sciences on UC-Irvine’s campus.
The goal of this symposium is to highlight recent advances in understanding connections between the chemical and physical nature of ambient aerosol and their interactions with atmospheric water vapor. Topics to be covered include: water uptake, aqueous-phase chemistry (cloud, fog, and deliquesced particle), the influence of relative humidity on particle-phase chemistry of organics and inorganics, warm and cold cloud formation, particle phase transitions, modeling aerosol chemistry and microphysics, and broader implications for the prediction of air quality and climate. Submissions across multiple platforms are welcome. Specifically (but not limited to), laboratory developments of chemical and microphysical properties, field studies and direct ambient measurements, and modeling studies that span different scales.
Please pass this announcement along to anyone you think may be interested. We hope that you and your group members will consider submitting an abstract and we look forward to seeing you in December!

The group that bakes together…
The Carlton group is delighted the community is engaging with this ~week old paper.
Findings from an adventure that began in earnest in 2010 is finally published in the flagship magazine of American Meteorology Society. Quite an accomplishment for a group of chemists!
Amy Christiansen has formally advanced to candidacy in Irvine’s chemistry Ph.D. program. Amy’s excited lab mates decorated her desk in honor of the achievement!
