expand his/her classroom knowledge and skills within a professional setting.

Under the guidance of experienced RTI researchers in air quality and
exposure, the intern will assist with multiple ongoing projects. These
projects include characterizing and evaluating performance of advanced
aerosol instrumentation such as the aerosol chemical speciation monitor
through lab and field measurements, analyzing air quality measurement data
from low-cost sensors, performing spatial and temporal analysis of air
quality data, and analyzing data from regional photochemical model such as
the Community Multiscale Air Quality (CMAQ) model. The intern will gain
experience in handling and analyzing both measurement and model data as
well as in literature review. Responsibilities include, but are not limited

   - Assist with data analysis of air quality model and ambient
   measurements and deposition data
   - Assist with quality assurance and temporal and spatial analysis of
   low-cost sensor data and developing scripts for data processing
   - Assist with laboratory and field experiments to characterize advanced
   aerosol measurement instrumentation such as the aerosol chemical speciation
   - Conduct literature review related to these studies
