Jamie Kelly, Postdoctoral Associate
Jamie graduated from the University of Edinburgh (U.K.) with a PhD in Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences. During this time, Jamie developed the chemistry scheme within a global atmospheric model. Using this new chemistry scheme, Jamie examined how future changes in climate and emissions will alter the distributions of organic aerosols in the atmosphere. Now at MIT, Jamie’s role in the Superfund Research Program (SRP) is to model Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs), with particular emphasis on their sources, transport, transformations, and health impacts.
Poushali Maji, Postdoctoral Associate
Poushali received her Ph.D. from the Institute for Resources, Environment & Sustainability, University of British Columbia. She works at the intersection of three major energy challenges facing large developing countries - clean energy access, air quality improvement and climate change mitigation. Her research focuses on analyzing energy consumption data and using energy systems models to inform policy decisions that can simultaneously address multiple energy issues in an integrated manner. She has a B.Sc. in Physics from St. Stephen’s College (University of Delhi), and an M.Sc. in Renewable Energy from the University of Edinburgh. In the past, she worked with WWF’s Climate Change & Energy programme and as a wind energy consultant. When she’s not working, Poushali loves traveling and running and cooking up a storm.
