||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
|Amanda Frossard 2008-
Amanda joined the Russell
group in Fall 2008 as a graduate student in Climate
Science after graduating from UC Berkeley with a B.S. in
Chemistry. For her first project, Amanda worked on
determining the contributions of combustion sources to
submicron organic mass in the Arctic, as part of the
ICEALOT project. She also analyzed filter samples from
a forest site for BEARPEX 2009. In May and June 2010,
Amanda participated in the CalNex campaign and collected
particle samples on board the R/V Atlantis. She was also on
board the R/V Point Sur during July 2011 as part of the
EPEACE project where she looked at the chemical and
physical properties of ambient marine aerosol. Amanda
measured generated marine particles from the Sea Sweep
and Bubbler on board the R/V Ronald Brown during
August 2012 as part of the WACS project. Her focus
is on determining the sources and composition of organic
mass in the marine boundary layer using measurements of
ambient and generated marine particles.
- Projects Include: BEARPEX, ICEALOT,
CalNex, EPEACE, WACS
|Ashley Corrigan 2009-
joined the Russell Group in September 2009 as part of the SIO Marine
Chemistry Curricular Group, after graduating from the University of San
Diego with a B.A in Biochemistry and Biology. Her research
collaboration at California Institute of Technology, measuring organic
functional groups of secondary organic aerosols generated in laboratory
smog chambers. Future research plans include participating in the
CAL-NEX study at California Institute of Technology in May 2010. She
will also be studying biogenic aerosols during the HUMPPA Campaign at
the SMEAR II research site in Hyytiala, Finland during July 2010.
||Janin Guzman Morales 2011-
Janin joined the Russell
group in winter 2011 as a research scholar, after
obtaining her B.S. in Chemistry at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
She became an SIO graduate student in Fall 2012 in the Marine
Chemistry curricular group. Since then, she has been
actively involved in aerosol sampling, collecting data
with the High Resolution Aerosol Mass Spectrometer at the Mt. Soledad, La Jolla, California Project
in May-June 2012 and at the Western Atlantic Climate Study
in August 2012. As a second year student, she is currently
interseted in the relative contribution of different types
of fuels to submicron particles in California urban
||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 Russel 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.
||Kylee Chang 2013-
Kylee joined the Russell group in
July 2013 as a graduate student in Marine Chemistry after graduating from Loyola
Marymount University with a B.S. in Chemistry and working at the South Coast Air
Quality Management District in Los Angeles. Her current research project involves
analyzing filter samples from Alert, Canada for their chemical properties and
comparing functional groups with filter and ice core samples from Washington.
Her other interests include biological contributions to particle formation in the Arctic.
||Seth Chunn 2013-
Seth joined the research group
in the Fall of 2013 as an undergraduate at the University of California, San Diego.
In the Spring of 2014 he will graduate with a degree in Chemical Engineering.
