pollution from local to global scales, including developing scientific
methods and evaluating policy scenarios for mitigation. This research is
interdisciplinary and draws from a variety of fields, including atmospheric
science, epidemiology, and economics.

This position will aid Dr. Anenberg in designing novel studies related to
modeling the health implications of present and future climate change and
air pollution. The individual will be involved in all aspects of research
including directing and performing computer-based modeling work, analyzing
and interpreting data, and preparing manuscripts and presentations. In
conjunction with Dr. Anenberg, other department investigators, and outside
