Research Interests

Dr Anjaneyulu.Yerramilli is presently involved  as a Lead Investigator in two main areas of research

Atmospheric Pollution Dispersion Modeling and application of Nano materials and Molecularly Imprinted Polymers

 

1) Atmospheric Dispersion and Source-Receptor Modeling using High Resolution Meteorological Fields for Assessing Air Pollution Risk Assessment in the Mississippi Gulf Coastal Region” ( This program is sponsored by NOAA)

 

 This program involves conducting  extensive studies on multi-scale simulation of meteorological fields for wind, temperature, humidity, and planetary boundary layer (PBL) turbulence utilizing state of the art modeling applications such as Weather Research Forecast (WRF), which is a very useful tool to drive dispersion models for precise air quality assessment and prediction. The simulated high resolution meteorological fields, surface and satellite measurements will be integrated into the dispersion models. These models include Hybrid Single Particle Lagrangian Integrated Trajectory (HYSPLIT), Community Air Quality (CMAQ) and WRF-Chemistry, which may provide more precise information on source identification, relative contribution and source apportionment for addressing regional and local air quality issues. The air quality information obtained through these modeling processes can be visually displayed through Virtual Reality and Geographic Information Systems (VRGIS). This will provide a valuable tool for various regulatory agencies (local, state and federal) for precise air quality risk assessment and management for the Gulf Coast.

 

2 Computationally Designed, Molecularly Imprinted Polymers as Novel Materials for Toxic Chemical Sensors”.(This program is sponsored by DoD)

 

This program involves  conducting extensive  studies on

  • Understanding MIPs by  theoretical aspects of molecular  structure –bonding energies, characteristics of active site, active site – template intermolecular interactions, and charge transfer, solvent influence on the system and IR spectra analyses.
  • Synthesis and characterization of nitro explosives imprinted polymers using computationally identified monomers and crosslinkers.
  • Gold Nanomaterial based   Surface-Enhanced Fluorescence Assay  for   Sensitive and selective detection of toxic  pollutants &explosives
