About me

Dr. Gkatzelis is a senior scientist in the field of atmospheric chemistry at Research Center Jülich, Germany. The majority of his research has been on the emissions, chemical evolution, and impacts of organic trace gases to air quality in the Earth’s atmosphere. His research background includes multiple chamber and field studies in Europe, China, and the US. Specifically, he measures organic trace gases using state-of-the-art mass spectrometers that he deploys on ground site, mobile laboratory, and aircraft platforms in order to identify, and quantify their emissions and potential to form secondary pollutants including ozone and particulate matter.
