Research Interests

Marr's group applies a quantitative approach to track emissions, transport, transformation, and fate of atmospheric pollutants. Methods include laboratory and field experiments, data analysis, and computer modeling. The outcome of her group's research is an improved ability to monitor, predict, and control air quality, with the ultimate effect of optimizing air pollution management strategies and thus improving human health and welfare. Current research projects involve (1) assessing the environmental impacts of engineered nanoparticles, (2) measuring neighborhood-scale air pollutant emissions, (3) developing new models and methods for tracking airborne transmission of infectious disease, and (4) determining the interactions of particles with emissions of endocrine disruptors from building materials.
