Benjamin Brown-Steiner

My name is Ben Brown-Steiner, post-doctoral researcher at Cornell University. I use a supercomputer operated by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) to model and examine how human emissions, and in particular emissions from industry, trucks, and trains, impact the air quality and climate of the Northeastern US. During my time at Cornell I've studied how emissions from Asia have impacted surface ozone in the US, conducted a diagnostic study on climate model sensitivity to a variety of parameters, and am currently studying the impacts of our rapidly expanding freight shipment network (trucks and trains) on the Black Carbon (i.e. soot) air quality of urban and rural areas.
