We are pleased to announce that Nate May has joined our group as a post-doctoral scholar! In his new position, Nate will be utilizing his atmospheric aerosol research experience to study indoor air quality, including the impacts of wildfire smoke events, and to contribute to the ongoing field studies at the Mount Bachelor Observatory. Nate is looking forward to “the opportunity to do field work at the Mount Bachelor Observatory and contribute to research on the increasingly important issue of air quality, and more generally returning to atmospheric research after teaching for the past two years.”
Nate received his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and a B.S. in Chemistry from Santa Clara University, Santa Clara, California. His dissertation research focused on the production, transport, and chemical composition of atmospheric aerosols generated from wave breaking in the Arctic Ocean and the Great Lakes.
Originally from Poulsbo, Washington, Nate is a Pacific NW native and enjoys supporting the Seattle Sounders. In his free time, he can also be found hiking, biking, kayaking, baking, cooking, and spending time with his partner, Gloria, and puppy, Juniper.
We look forward to welcoming Nate in person in the not-too-distant future and hope to sample some of his culinary treats. Welcome, Nate! We are so glad to have you as part of our research team.
