how to create your own website


I am an atmospheric chemist. I study how pollutants that affect air quality and climate enter the atmosphere, how they react in the air, form secondary pollutants, and how they are eventually removed from the atmosphere. To do so, I develop computer models of atmospheric chemistry and use them with observations from satellites, aircraft, and ground sites. My work is motivated by the urgent need to better understand and respond to air pollution and climate change.

I work as a Lead Research Scientist at NASA's Global Modeling and Assimilation Office (GMAO) through Science Systems and Applications, Inc. I received my PhD from the Department of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Washington, where I worked with Lyatt Jaeglé and did my postdoctoral work in the Atmospheric Chemistry Modeling Group at Harvard University.
