Lu Hu is an atmospheric chemist studying atmospheric composition and how it is influenced by human and natural processes. His research group uses a combination of field observations and atmospheric modeling to investigate the origins, chemistry, and transport of air pollutants such as ozone (O3) and particulate matter (PM), and how they impact air quality and climate locally and globally. Current projects focus on global tropospheric ozone budgets, long term changes of trace gases in the atmosphere, land-atmosphere exchange of organic carbon.
