Students working in this project will be part of a larger campaign called "ACROSS" - Atmospheric Chemistry of the Suburban Forest - taking place outside of Paris, France this summer. ACROSS is a project supported by the Make Our Planet Great Again initiative that enables focused research on the interactions of urban and biogenically-influenced air masses. A highlight of this project is a comprehensive, multi-platform field measurement campaign. More information about research in France is provided here.
The primary student responsibility will be to support operation and data analysis of atmospheric chemistry measurements that are part of this campaign.
In your application please address why this type of project would be beneficial to you.
Research in the Hawkins lab targets the intersection of air quality and climate change. Students working in my lab are trained to operate research-grade atmospheric chemistry instrumentation and often get to participate in collaborative work that takes them off campus. Students will advance their understanding along more than one axis (chemistry, engineering, data analysis, and environmental science).
