Apoorva Pandey

Ph.D Student & Research Assistant, Department of Energy, Environ. & Chem. Engr.


Apoorva received her B.Tech in Mechanical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi in 2012. Her research interests are in the field of experimental and theoretical techniques for estimating aerosol optical properties. She is particularly interested in the characterization of real-world emissions from household biomass combustion, through a combination of in-field measurements and offline UV-vis spectrophotometry.
