Assistant Professor

Research Interests:

Dr. Ban-Weiss is interested in how humans alter the environment ranging from urban to global scales.

  • Using global and regional climate models to study the influence of anthropogenic aerosols and land cover change on global and regional climate
  • Developing high spatial resolution emissions and surface albedo data for megacities
  • Developing novel measurement methods to characterize climatically relevant pollutant emissions from energy sources
  • Evaluating the representation of particle-cloud interactions in climate models using satellite data
  • Synergistic approaches for reducing climate change and urban air pollution.
