Loretta Mickley, PhD

Senior Research Fellow
Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences

Loretta Mickley co-leads the Atmospheric Chemistry Modeling Group at Harvard. Her research focuses on chemistry-climate interactions in the troposphere. She seeks to understand how short-lived gases and particles affect climate and how climate, in turn, influences atmospheric composition. Key topics:

– Effects of climate change on smog episodes and wildfires.
– Impacts of aerosol trends on regional climate.
– Oxidation capacity of paleo atmospheres.
