He operates the Aerosol Physics and Technology laboratory (APT Lab) in the Department of Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering. From 2011 to summer 2014, he served as an Assistant Research Professor at the University of Nevada-Reno/Desert Research Institute. He currently serves as the American Association for Aerosol Research (AAAR) Chair of the Aerosol Physics working group.</p></div><img alt="" src="/Profiles/ResearchImages/Chakrabarty_research.jpg?RenditionID=13" style="BORDER:0px solid;" /><p>​314-935-6054<br/><a href="mailto:rajan.chakrabarty@seas.wustl.edu">chakrabarty@wustl.edu</a><br/>Brauer Hall, Room 3025 </p><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arV4-vi0gdo">play video</a><ul><li> <a href="/news/Pages/Recreating-wildfires.aspx">Recreating wildfires</a>​</li><li> <a href="/news/Pages/New-type-of-soot-from-wildfires-to-be-probed-for-role-in-climate-change.aspx">New type of soot from wildfires to be probed for role in climate change</a> </li><li> <a href="/news/Pages/Chakrabarty-receives-CAREER-Award-from-National-Science-Foundation.aspx" style="background-color: #ffffff;">Chakrabarty receives CAREER Award from National Science Foundation</a><br/></li><li> <a href="/news/Pages/Peat-fire-emissions-may-shed-light-on-climate-change.aspx" style="background-color: #ffffff;">Peat fire emissions may shed light on climate change</a><br/></li><li><a href="/news/Pages/Environmental-budget-cuts-could-be-grim.aspx" style="background-color: #ffffff;">Environmental budget cuts could be ‘grim’</a> <br/></li></ul>
