Doctoral student Hossein Dadashazar collects cloud water samples aboard the Navy Twin OtterFor a chemical engineer whose research is funded mainly by the U.S. Navy, associate professor Armin Sorooshian spends a lot of time with his head in the clouds.  

Aboard tricked-out planes, he and his graduate students study aerosols – tiny airborne particles that form clouds, alter weather patterns and affect air quality.

He discussed his research on-air with KJZZ in January 2017.
