Meet Our Committee Members, Part I: Siegfried Schobesberger

“I was recently hired as Assistant Professor by the University of Eastern Finland to lead the mass spectrometry-based atmospheric chemistry research with the Aerosol Physics group in Kuopio, Finland. My research focus is on measuring the composition and physical and chemical properties of organic aerosol particles, as well as the sources and sinks of the compounds these particles consists of, which includes the emission, oxidative processing and deposition of volatile organic compounds and their products.

"I initially joined the North America Regional ECSN Committee, when I was a postdoc at the University of Washington, but soon changed to the Europe/Mediterranean committee when coming back to Europe in 2017. Prior to joining, I had worked on a research project on the lifecycle of atmospheric formic acid (famously produced by certain ants, but not only!), which led to a close collaboration with specialists in ecosystem and biosphere-atmosphere exchange research. My primary motivation then, for becoming a member of the ECSN Regional Committees, was simply to get more involved with iLEAPS in general, and the wide and interdisciplinary network of researchers that this project promotes. Being on the organizational side of the ECSN gives me challenges different from my every-day research work, and the opportunity to learn how to best support other young scientists in the early stages of their career.”
