Kabin joined the Russell group as a postdoctoral scholar in August 2011. He received a Ph.D. in environmental engineering from Rice University. His previous works include characterizing the aerosols from Kathmandu, New Hampshire, and Houston, and smog chamber investigation on secondary organic aerosols and gaseous mercury chemistry. He is currently working on characterizing chamber particles using scanning transmission X-ray microscopy with near-edge absorption fine structure (STXM-NEXAFS). His other projects include studying the ambient particles using single particle soot photometer (sp2) and fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. His research interests include the study areas in aerosol chemistry, aerosol measurements, source apportionments, and secondary organic aerosol.
