Dr. Rupert Holzinger is leading specialist in development and application of techniques to measure reactive organic species in both, the gas phase and in aerosols. Recently he developed a thermal-desorption proton-transfer-reaction mass-spectrometer (TD-PTR-MS) with which the organic composition of aerosols can be measured in unprecedented detail. His scientific focus is on fundamental processes that lead to the formation of new particles and secondary organic aerosol. R Holzinger participated in many international field campaigns such as CalNex-La (2010), EUCAARI-IOP (2008), ICARTT (2004), MINOS (2002). PhD from Innsbruck University, Austria,1998; 1999-2002 Postdoc at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry, Mainz, Germany; 2003-2005 Associate Specialist at the University of California, Berkeley, USA; 2006-present Assistant Professor at Institute for Matine and Atmospheric Research, Utrecht University (IMAU), The Netherlands.
