Mohamad Sleiman is an Environmental Chemist and a Research Scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. He leads the experimental effort for the development of accelerated aging protocols to mimic the loss of solar reflectance of roofing materials caused by long-term natural exposure. His research also focuses on self-cleaning technologies and understanding the fate and chemistry of indoor and outdoor pollutants and their effects on air quality and public health.
