Professional Experience

Physical Scientist, Atmospheric Modeling Division, National Exposure Research Laboratory, U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, Research Triangle Park, NC, 1998 - Present
Responsibilities develop and evaluate computer models for the air concentration and deposition of Hazardous Air Pollutants. The activities require researching scientific literature, developing conceptual models and implementing them within numerical models for air quality. To evaluate the product, work locates and uses observations to compare with model predictions. Success requires collaborating with other scientist within and outside the US EPA. These skills were used on models for a pesticide called Atrazine, Dioxins, Furans, aldehydes and chlorinated hydrocarbon compounds.

1996-1998 – Meteorologist, Environmental Sciences Program, Minerals Management Service, U.S. Department of Interior, New Orleans, LA 70123, 1996 - 1998
Responsibilities included writing, awarding, and managing contracts in air quality and meteorology. They also conducted air dispersion modeling to support environmental assessments and impact statements. Other responsibilities advised agency management and coordinating meetings on agency research and regulatory questions. The experience required skills for interpersonal communication and team management. Accomplishments studied sulfur and nitrogen oxides, established meteorological monitors and started emission inventories in the Gulf of Mexico.
