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 80+ publications in high-impact journals.

She has conducted research on ozone and carbon monoxide in the Northeast, biogenic and anthropogenic contributions to volatile organic compounds in marine and terrestrial environments, continental outflow of ozone using measurement aboard the Smart Balloon platform and satellite data,  speciated mercury on regional to global scales, atmospheric mercury depletion events in the springtime Arctic, and present and future climate and 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 and built an air quality observotary at Nanjing University in January 2011 through collaboration with colleagues in the US and in China.  One of her collaborative projects in China is to investigate processes controlling atmospheric mercury cycling atop Mt. Tai funded by Chinese National Science Foundation. 

Much of her work has been supported by the NOAA-funded AIRMAP and Targeted Wind Sensing programs, EPA, NASA, NSF and NYSERDA.
