John Liggio received his Ph.D. in chemistry in 2004 from York University in Toronto Canada. Dr. Liggio serves currently as a Research Scientist in the Air Quality Research Division of Environment Canada. His research focuses on field and laboratory studies of primary aerosol emissions, secondary organic aerosol formation, evolution, transformation, and fate as well as the processes controlling the formation of smog. His specific projects include process research on aerosol particle emissions and transformation in the atmosphere through laboratory and field studies; ammonia/sulfuric acid/organic aerosol interactions; organosulfate formation in aerosols; black carbon emissions from gasoline and diesel vehicles; kinetics of heterogeneous reactions and secondary organic aerosol formation; elucidation of new secondary organic aerosol formation mechanisms; near roadway measurements of vehicle emissions and their evolution; implications for population exposure; aerosol mass spectrometry and chemical mass spectrometry measurements of oxidants and aerosols.
