Dr. Adriana Predoi-Cross
Dr. Adriana Predoi-Cross is involved in molecular spectroscopic studies for remote sensing of planetary atmospheres. Her specific areas of research right now include experimental studies of line shapes and molecular collisional dynamics in molecules of environmental interest, theoretical modelling of collisional effects in molecular spectra, and the development of novel spectroscopic tools that combine investigations of molecular structure and molecular interactions with line shape studies.
