Hélène Angot, Postdoctoral Associate
Helene investigates the sources and pathways of potential mercury exposure using integrated modeling and data analysis. In the context of public health, she examines whether upstream policy-induced variations in mercury emissions will result in local changes in contamination. Prior to joining MIT, Helene completed her PhD at the Laboratoire de Glaciologie et Geophysique de l’Environnement (LGGE, Grenoble, France) where she studied the atmospheric cycle of mercury in remote areas of the Southern Hemisphere (subantarctic and Antarctic regions). During her free time, Helene loves swimming, hiking, and traveling.
Amanda Giang, Postdoctoral Associate
Amanda's research focuses on how to effectively use modelling to inform environmental governance decisions. She is studying how integrated assessment models can be used to inform local to global scale governance of long-ranged, persistent pollutants like mercury. She received her PhD in Engineering Systems in 2017.
