Robert Healy

Biography

Dr Healy was awarded a European Commission Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship in 2012 (€240,000), and is currently undertaking the outgoing phase of this fellowship at the Southern Ontario Centre for Atmospheric Aerosol Research at the University of Toronto.He is simultaneously affiliated with the Centre for Research into Atmospheric Chemistry at University College Cork, where he also graduated with a PhD in Chemistry (2008).
His research involves assessment of the air quality and climate implications associated with atmospheric aerosols. Current projects include investigation of single particle diversity and mixing state, compilation of a global library of single particle mass spectral data, and investigation of the chemical and optical properties of black carbon. These projects involve active collaboration with researchers in the USA, Canada, China, Norway, Switzerland, Germany, France and the UK.
