I’m from Sri Lanka and I completed my undergraduate studies in the University of Sri Jayewardenepura, Sri Lanka. I joined to the Tivanski's lab in Fall 2017. Right now, I’m studying Sea Spray Aerosols using Atomic Force Microscopy, to characterize and identify several physicochemical properties that affect the climate. I’m also a fan of books and movies.

I came from a small island called Sri Lanka. I did my undergraduate studies in the University of Sri Jayewardenepura and I completed my M.S. training in analytical chemistry from the University of Colombo. I joined the Tivanski's lab in Fall 2015 and I study interaction forces in biological systems and characterizing nanomaterials using Atomic Force Microscopy. I like to play chess when I have  free time.

Hansol D. Lee

Hello! I received my B.A. in Chemistry from Loyola University Chicago, and joined Tivanski group in 2015. Right now, my research focuses on using the atomic force microscope to perform single particle studies of atmospherically relevant aerosols, particularly those that come from the sea and cool the Earth. Our mission is to transform our ability to accurately predict the impact that these aerosols have on the environment, by bridging the gap between nascent and lab generated aerosols.
