Jorma Keskinen became a professor of physics in 2001. He is the founder and leader of the Aerosol Physics Laboratory. He has several patents on aerosol measurement techniques and instruments based on the concepts originally develop in his group are used by over 400 laboratories worldwide. He has led studies related to aerosol instrument development, atmospheric particle formation, vehicle emissions and emission reduction technologies. Besides aerosol measurement techniques, his current research interest include composition analysis of atmospheric primary biological particles and ice nuclei, emissions of engines, vehicles, and ships – especially nanoparticles and secondary aerosol formation potential. He is a member of the Research Council for Natural Sciences and Engineering of the Academy of Finland and a deputy member of the National IPCC working group.
