multiscale modeling


The Computational Atmospheric Chemistry and Exposure Laboratory, led by Dr. Kristina Wagstrom, specializes in applying computational engineering-based approaches to address problems related to air pollution and atmospheric chemistry. This includes creating new and expanded modeling approaches, using community-developed computational tools to directly answer pressing scientific questions, using low-cost monitoring tools to expand the observational data available for model evaluation and development, and addressing local air pollution concerns posed by community partners. The overarching goal of the laboratory is to bridge the gap between the basic scientific understanding of the transport and transformation of atmospheric pollutants and the tools policy makers and communities use to develop potential air pollution strategies.
