Dr. Huiting Mao's research interests include regional tropospheric chemistry and climate change, intercontinental transport of trace gases and aerosols, climate-air quality connections, biosphere-atmosphere exchange of trace gases, and radiative transfer processes. Her work on these topics has appeared in 90+ high-impact journal publications. She has conducted research on ozone chemistry, biogenic and anthropogenic contributions to volatile organic compounds in marine and terrestrial environments, continental export of ozone and its precursors, speciated mercury on regional to global scales, and impacts of climate change on air quality. Her group has been conducting long-term, continuous measurements of ozone, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, mercury, JNO2, and meteorological variables on on ESF campus since January 2013.  She has also been investigating air pollution problems in East China through building an air quality observotary at Nanjing University in January 2011 and conducting field and long-term studies there. Much of her work has been supported by the NOAA-funded AIRMAP and Targeted Wind Sensing programs, EPA, NASA, NSF and NYSERDA.
