Environmental chemistry, aqueous phase chemistry and cloud microphysics measurements, gas and aerosol scavenging, precipitation and deposition processes, and air quality.


Professor Jeff Collett received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from MIT in 1984 and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Environmental Engineering from Caltech in 1985 and 1989. Following completion of the Ph.D., he spent two years as a postdoctoral research associate in the Laboratory for Atmospheric Physics at ETH-Zurich and three years as an assistant professor at the University of Illinois holding joint appointments in the Institute for Environmental Studies and the Environmental Engineering Program in the Department of Civil Engineering. He came to Colorado State University in Fall 1994 where he joined the growing Atmospheric Chemistry Program. Dr. Collett was twice named to the Incomplete List of Teachers Rated as Excellent by their Students at the University of Illinois and was named an Office of Naval Research Young Investigator in 1992. His research concerns cloud and precipitation chemistry, the role of clouds as processors of tropospheric particles and trace gases, and the impacts of atmospheric aerosol particles on regional visibility. His interests focus on process-oriented field research, instrument development and environmental chemistry.
