The Lab Report: UW researchers explore health, climate change implications of air quality issues
Editor’s note: The Lab Report is a weekly series in The Badger Herald’s print edition where we take a deep dive into the (research) lives of students and professors outside the classroom.
Despite being smaller than the eye can see, tiny particles in the air we breathe can have a big impact on our health and the environment.
The Bertram Research Group in the University of Wisconsin’s Department of Chemistry studies how these compounds cause air quality issues with important health and climate implications.
UW Professor Tim Bertram and his group study applications of atmospheric chemistry in both local and remote locations — including on the raging ocean.

UW graduate student Delaney Kilgour chose the Bertram Group for her research due to its applications to society. Everything the group works on feels relevant to her — a trait she felt other areas of chemistry seemed to lack.Kilgour conducts experiments in collaboration with the National Science Foundation Center for Aerosol Impacts on Chemistry of the Environment and the University of California, San Diego. Currently, she is focusing on gas phase […]
