Fields: Air Quality Assessment, Policy Tool Suite Development
Lab Role: Research Specialist
I come from Seoul, South Korea. My research focused on the development of the GEOS-Chem adjoint model for the air quality assessment. I have added the aircraft emissions component to GEOS-Chem, a Chemical Transport Model. Using the model, I have assessed the long-term, global air quality impact of full-flight aircraft emissions. In addition, I am currently implementing the aircraft emissions component to another model for climate assessment.
