Introduction :

Dr. James J. Schauer is a Professor in the College of Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, serves as the Director of the Water Science and Engineering Laboratory, and a core faculty member of the Environmental Chemistry and Technology Program. He also serves as the Director for Air Quality at the Wisconsin State Laboratory of Hygiene, which operates as part of the University of Wisconsin. Dr. Schauer has previously worked in the chemical and petroleum refining industry as a Chemical Process Engineer and has helped commission and start-up large chemical facilities in Asia, Europe, North America, and Africa.  
Dr. Schauer’s research focuses on the use of advanced chemical analysis and air pollution sampling techniques to understand the chemical composition of source emissions and atmospheric pollutant concentrations. These methods are being used to understand the origin and impacts of air pollutants including on urban areas, human health, sensitive ecosystems, and global climate change.  Dr. Schauer has authored and co-authored more than 250 peer reviewed manuscripts in leading environmental science, environmental engineering and air pollution journals, which have been collectively cited over 10,000 times.
