Dr. Fraser directs several research projects on urban air quality. His research uses organic speciation and receptor modeling to apportion ambient pollutants to their original source. Dr. Fraser's research group is involved in field-monitoring programs, source-characterization studies, emission-inventory preparation, and analytical method and instrument development projects.
