Senior Science Advisor

Dr. James N. Pitts, Jr. was an additional resource for our team from AirUCI's inception until his death on June 19, 2014 at the age of 93.  He was Professor Emeritus at the University of California, Riverside, co-founder and past director of the University of California Statewide Air Pollution Research Center, and was an AirUCI senior research chemist until the end.  He is greatly missed.    Visit the Jim Pitts memorial page

AirUCI Research Team

Much of our work is carried out by our talented research team, comprised of postdoctoral researchers, graduate students, and undergraduate students.  Our summer staff includes chemistry teachers at the community college and high school levels who share with their students the latest research results from our projects.  In addition, we regularly host visiting researchers from outside institutions as we build on collaborations and conduct joint research projects.
