Profiles in "Atmospheric Processes" Expertise Area

  • PhD student in the School of Geographical Sciences and Urban Planning. Member of the Urban Climate Research Center. Researching extreme heat and human health, particularly in indoor environments.
  • Michael Line studies the atmospheres of extra-solar planets and brown dwarfs with the goal of understanding their compositions, climate, and origins.
  • Saira is a PhD candidate and National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow in geological sciences at SESE. Her research interests are in planetary volcanology, planetary interiors, and large-scale atmospheric dynamics.
  • Katrina Bossert is a space physicist who studies dynamics in the near-Space region. She uses optical remote sensing instrumentation to look at coupling between the lower atmosphere and thermosphere-ionosphere system.
  • Morris' research explores the microphysical and chemical evolution of airborne particles (e.g. mineral dust) in planetary atmospheres with applications to climate change, air quality, aerobiology, and environmental justice.
