Our laboratory is dedicated to the study and understanding of climate change's effects on the atmosphere, specifically in the formation and growth of cold cirrus clouds. A major component of our work is building spectroscopic instruments for laboratory and field use for measurement of water vapor and its isotopic composition as a tracer of condensation processes. Student and postdoctoral projects include laboratory work on instrumentation and mid-infrared spectroscopy, field measurement campaigns, use of mesoscale and global-scale models, and analysis of satellite and aircraft data. We are currently collaborating with the Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe and the University of Heidelberg in Germany on cirrus experiments within the AIDA aersol and cloud chamber.
Collaborators on energy and climate policy and economics include Ian Foster (director, U. Chicago Computation Institute), Ken Judd (computational economics, Hoover Institution), Ray Pierrehumbert (climate modeling, U. Chicago Geosciences), David Weisbach (carbon taxation, U. Chicago Law School), postdocs Joshua Elliot (Computation Institute) and David McInerney (Geosciences), and many others.
