Another "Distinguished Senior Researcher" at Empa
Distinction for one who is looking upwards
Complementary to energy research
Brunner describes his work as follows: "In my research group we determine emissions from industry, traffic, households and agriculture as well as their effects on air quality and the greenhouse effect. Our research topic fits in well with energy research, which is becoming increasingly important at Empa. Our colleagues are concerned with ensuring that fewer greenhouse gases are released into the atmosphere – while we look upwards and see whether these measures are reflected in atmospheric concentrations and where the path is leading us."
The title of "Distinguished Senior Researcher" has been awarded at Empa since 2015 to researchers of outstanding international reputation. Brunner is only the 5th researcher to receive this distinction.
