Area of Expertise
Dr. Sachdeva works in the research domain of atmospheric process and its linkages with climate change. She has completed her doctorate in atmospheric chemistry in 2008 from JNU and published several research papers and book chapters in the area of atmospheric sciences.
During her tenure of research, she has explored basic and applied research questions on chemical and physical processes involving aerosols, as well as organic and metal pollutants of relevance to the environment and its interfaces. She and her research team’s direct contributions are to the fields of atmospheric sciences and climate change, specifically aerosol-fog interaction, air pollution, aerosols and health, fog chemistry and micrometeorology.
