Chowdhury “Monir” Moniruzzaman is conducting air quality modeling research at the Institute for the Environment at UNC-Chapel Hill. His research quantifies the effect of aviation emission on air quality by the coupled meteorology-atmospheric-chemistry models such as WRF-CMAQ and WRF-Chem. He also has expertise in aerosol dynamics, soot formation modeling, aircraft emission, diesel engine emission, coal combustion emission, computational combustion, combustion kinetics and nanoparticle formation in aerosol reactor.
