Fields of interest:
Olivia’s research aims to quantify how tropospheric ozone, an air pollutant and potent greenhouse gas, responds to changing precursor emissions, climate, and land use. In particular, her research focuses on how the vegetation sink of tropospheric ozone changes with meteorology and biophysics and how this modulates atmospheric composition. Olivia uses multiscale measurements and a hierarchy of models in her research. Better constraints on spatiotemporal variability in this poorly understood sink will advance our ability to predict air quality and impacts on humans and ecosystems with changing climate.
