||Prof. Lynn M. Russell
Russell is a Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry at
the Scripps Institution of Oceanography of the University of
California, San Diego. Her research interests are
in aerosol composition, aerosol-cloud interactions, and aerosol
evolution in the
troposphere. Using a variety of techniques for both observations and
modeling, her work has contributed to an improved understanding of how
aerosols affect climate. Dr. Russell received her B.S. in
engineering and A.B. in international relations from Stanford
University. She received her Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from
the California Institute
of Technology in 1995.
| Current Members
||Li Xu 2012-
Li joined the Russell group as a postdoctoral scholar in April 2012 after she received her PhD in Atmospheric Science from University of Michigan. Her research activities will involve multiscale modeling of aerosol indirect effects on decadal timescales and parameterization for frost flower aerosols salt emissions in the Arctic.
||Kevin Sanchez 2012-
Kevin joined the Russell group in the fall of 2012 as a graduate student in
climate science. Kevin graduated from The Pennsylvania State University
with a B.S. in Meteorology. He is currently working on an externally mixed
aerosol model to compare modeled aerosol activities to observations from
the 2011 EPEACE project. He is interested in how aerosol compositions
affects their hygroscopicity and hence capability to activate.
||Jun Liu 2013-
Jun joined the Russell group in the fall quarter of 2013 as a graduate student in Climate Science. Jun graduated from Tsinghua University with a B.Eng. in Environment Engineering. His current research interest is the influence of anthropogenic pollution on biogenic SOA. He is also interested in chamber experiments that simulate SOA formation in ambient atmosphere.
||Maryam Asgari Lamjiri 2014-
Maryam joined the Russell group in the fall of 2014 as a graduate student
in climate science. Maryam graduated from California State University, Los
Angeles with a M.S. in civil and environmental engineering. She is
seasonal and interannual variability of precipitation, CCN concentration,
and DMS emission over Southern Ocean.
||Yang Yang 2015-
Yang joined the Russell group as a postdoctoral scholar in February 2015 after he received his PhD in Atmospheric PPhysics and Atmospheric Environment from Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. His research activities will include modeling of aerosol-cloud interaction, cloud radiative effects and aerosol transport variabilities on interannual timescales.
||Raghu Betha 2015-
Raghu joined the Russell group as a postdoctoral scholar in February 2015. He received his PhD in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the National University of Singapore in 2012 and worked as a Research fellow in Singapore-MIT Alliance for Research & Technology before joining the Russell group. He is currently working on climate impacts of brown carbon and shipboard emission measurements. His major research interests include atmospheric aerosols (sources, formation, composition), atmospheric chemistry, climate change and public health impacts.
||Sijia Lou 2015-
Sijia joined the Russell group as a postdoctoral scholar in April 2015 after she received her PhD in Atmospheric Physics and Atmospheric Environment from Institute of Atmospheric Physics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. Her research activities will involve the interaction between dynamic cycles and dust aerosols over Asia.
||Derek Price 2015-|
Derek joined the Russell group as a postdoctoral scholar in July 2015 after he received his Ph.D in Chemical and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Riverside. His research activities will include characterization of anthropogenic and marine aerosols during shipboard campaigns in the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.
||Rosa Bebi 2015-|
Rosa joined the research group during her third year as an undergraduate at the University of Californa, San Diego. She will be graduating in the spring of 2016 with a degree in Marine Biology.
||Melissa Nguyen 2015-|
Melissa joined the Russell group in the summer of 2015 during her third year as an undergraduate at UC San Diego. She will be graduating with a bachelor degree of science in Chemical Engineering in the spring of 2016.
