| Noelle Eckley Selin
Assistant Professor of Engineering Systems and Atmospheric Chemistry
Noelle Eckley Selin is Assistant Professor of Engineering Systems in ESD. She has a joint appointment as Assistant Professor of Atmospheric Chemistry in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences. Her research and teaching focuses on informing decision-making strategies on air pollution, climate change, and hazardous substance management, using atmospheric chemistry modeling and other analyses. Her current work focuses on three main areas: constraining the biogeochemical cycling of mercury (Hg); assessing the health impacts of present and future air pollution; and informing science-policy interactions in hazardous substance management.
Prior to joining the MIT faculty in January 2010, Prof. Selin was a research scientist with the Center for Global Change Science and the Joint Program on Science and Policy of Global Change at MIT. She received her PhD in 2007 from Harvard University in Earth and Planetary Sciences, in the Atmospheric Chemistry Modeling Group.
Noelle Selin named Esther and Harold E. Edgerton Assistant Professor starting July 1, 2013, for a three-year term.
