Research Interests: Infrared and Photoelectron spectroscopy, Atmospheric Chemistry
Research in Dr. Gichuhi’s lab involves the application of FTIR and cavity ring down spectroscopic techniques in environmental and atmospheric chemistry to gain insights onto fundamental photophysical and photochemical processes and understand the fate of reactive and non-reactive trace gases in the atmosphere. We are also interested in understanding the vibrational structure of polyaromatic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAHs) radicals of astrochemical interest via negative ion photoelectron spectroscopy.
