Loretta Mickley co-leads the Atmospheric Chemistry Modeling Group at Harvard. Her research focuses on chemistry-climate interactions in the troposphere. She seeks to understand how short-lived gases and particles affect climate and how climate, in turn, influences atmospheric composition. Key topics:

  • Effects of climate change on smog episodes and wildfires.
  • Impacts of aerosol trends on regional climate.
  • Oxidation capacity of paleo atmospheres.

Current students and postdocs advised by Dr. Mickley include Eimy Bonilla, Miah Caine, Tianjia (Tina) Liu, Jonathan Moch, and Kent Toshima. See other alumni.
