Guillaume Chossiere

Research Assistant


I come from France and completed a master’s degree at École Centrale Paris, focused on Mechanical and Aeronautical engineering. Before joining MIT, I worked for a year as a production engineer at Turbomeca do Brasil, a subsidiary of the French aerospace group Safran, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I am also an avid reader and practice triathlon.


My research at LAE is focused on atmospheric modeling and air quality. My master’s thesis used atmospheric chemistry and numerical modeling to estimate the health impact in Europe of the emissions scandal involving the car manufacturer Volkswagen. I am now pursuing a PhD and my research investigates the air quality impacts of different modes of transportation (road, aviation, maritime) and analyzes potential policy measures to mitigate them.
