Lab Role: Research Assistant
I come from Los Angeles, California and I am currently finishing my Master of Science program at MIT’s Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. My research focuses on modeling the air quality impacts of aviation emissions to determine the health impacts of various aviation policy scenarios. For my Masters thesis, a widely used chemical transport model was adapted to model the air quality impacts and corresponding health impacts of aviation in Asia. Currently, I am working on developing a Response Surface Model (RSM), a meta-model of a full-scale chemical transport model, to estimate the effects of different aviation policies in a more time-efficient manner.
