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.
- Detection of delay in post-monsoon agricultural burning across Punjab, India: Potential drivers and consequences for air quality
- Enhanced aerosol particle growth sustained by high continental chlorine emission in India
- Global mortality from outdoor fine particle pollution generated by fossil fuel combustion: Results from GEOS-Chem
- Human-driven temporal shifts in fire activity: Southwest Russia and north Australia as case study regions
