Emily is an Atmospheric Physics Ph.D. scholar on the College of Maryland, Baltimore County. She is ending her third yr and works within the Laboratory for Atmospheric Research and Particle Gentle Interplay beneath the steerage of Dr. Adriana Rocha Lima. She is fascinated with bettering the bodily parameterization of local weather fashions by way of a greater understanding of bodily processes that drive the local weather. Her thesis work sits within the house between bodily measurements and local weather modeling and seeks to enhance the bodily parameterization of floor wind velocity and aerosolized mud, which is a part of the overall objective of bettering aerosol physics parameterization in international local weather fashions.
She additionally enjoys advocating for ladies and underrepresented college students in STEM and in her free time, you’ll discover her exploring every part Maryland and D.C. have to supply or studying new roller-skating methods.
Alicia is a third yr Ph.D. scholar on the College of Wisconsin – Madison within the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences division working with Dr. Tracey Holloway. In her analysis, she makes use of the Group Multiscale Air High quality (CMAQ) mannequin to grasp how nighttime N2O5 chemistry impacts daytime ozone focus and particle composition. Each ozone and PM2.5 are vital points of air high quality to check due to their impacts on human well being and the surroundings.
Previous to attending UW Madison, she labored with Dr. Don Blake at College of California – Irvine finding out landfill emissions for her Grasp of Science (M.S). She earned her Bachelor of Science (B.S) in Chemistry and Anthropology from Beloit Faculty.
Kylie Hoffman is a fourth-year graduate scholar on the College of Maryland, Baltimore County. She earned her undergraduate diploma in Meteorology in 2017 and is at present working in direction of her Ph.D. in Atmospheric Physics. Kylie’s present analysis pursuits embody working with energetic and passive distant sensing observations to research the bottom layer of the ambiance, the Planetary Boundary Layer (PBL).
Her thesis subject is investigating the affect of converging air lots on PBL dynamics and thermodynamics within the Southern Nice Plains area to enhance the prediction of thunderstorms.
David is at present a first-year Ph.D. scholar on the College of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), with a focus in tropical cyclogenesis on terrestrial and aqua-covered exoplanets. In Spring 2021, he earned his bachelor’s diploma in Atmospheric Science on the College at Albany, SUNY.
Enjoyable Truth: Earlier than he joined SaSa, he was beforehand a NASA Pupil Airborne Analysis Program (SARP) scholar throughout Summer time 2020 (Go AeroSOULS!).
Maurice is pursuing a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Physics from the College of Maryland, Baltimore County. His analysis focuses on utilizing observational datasets to check air air pollution in coastal areas. He works with distant sensing devices, like LIDAR (Gentle Detection and Ranging) and Spectrometers, in addition to in-situ devices, like Sondes and Air Samplers, to higher perceive how concentrations of pollution like ozone and nitrogen dioxide change in location and time.
He additionally makes use of Python for knowledge evaluation and gear growth.
