Jason D Surratt


Dr. Jason Surratt is an Associate Professor with tenure at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering located within the Gillings School of Global Public Health. He received his Ph.D. in chemistry from Caltech, and his B.A. and B.S. degrees in chemistry and meteorology, respectively, from North Carolina State University. His current research utilizes advanced mass spectrometry techniques with synthetic organic chemistry to understand as deeply as possible the atmospheric chemistry that occurs in both the gas and condensed phases, with special focus on the chemistry leading to the formation of secondary organic aerosol (SOA). His research has helped to derive model parameterizations that more explicitly predict atmospheric levels of isoprene-derived SOA, and has revealed the importance of acid-catalyzed multiphase chemistry in SOA formation.

He is the 2016 recipient of the James J. Morgan Environmental Science & Technology Early Career Award Lectureship, the 2013 recipient of the American Association for Aerosol Research (AAAR) Sheldon K. Friedlander Award, and the 2012 recipient of the Health Effects Institute (HEI) Walter A. Rosenblith New Investigator Award. Dr. Surratt has authored and co-authored more than 110 peer-reviewed articles in aerosol science, atmospheric chemistry, and air pollution journals.
