Dr. Abuhassan participated in the design and development of multiple world recognized sensors such as the Cimel sun photometers, Solar Viewing Interferometer and the Pandora Spectrometer. He participated in multiple national and international satellite validation and ground based instruments inter comparison campaigns. For the past four years he was heavily involved in the NASA’s DISCOVER_AQ project “ Deriving Information on Surface conditions from Column and Vertically Resolved Observations Relevant to Air Quality” where he managed to deploy and maintain up 15 Pandora spectrometers for each of the 4 field campaigns.
Dr. Abuhassan research is focused on designing and developing new sensors in support of the atmospheric chemistry research activities. He is highly interested in providing new tools to help scientists develop new methods to better understand the atmosphere composition, its dynamics and air-surface interactions.
