Prof. Petters joined NC State in 2009. He teaches Atmospheric Thermodynamics, Computing in the Geosciences, and Atmospheric Aerosols. His research focuses on the physics and chemistry of particles with diameters ranging from 10 nm to 10 µm. The work revolves around the question how these particles influence on air quality and cloud formation.
