Bio

Biography:
Dr. Benjamin Brown-Steiner is a Postdoctoral Associate at the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change and the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences. His research is on uncertainty analysis, model development and implementation of a three-dimensional atmospheric chemistry model in the MIT Integrated Global System Model (IGSM). Prior to MIT he worked on climate-chemistry simulations examining various impacts on surface air chemistry in the Eastern US as well as diagnostic analysis of the capabilities and limitations of the Community Earth System Model (CESM) with Chemistry. He is also interested in science communication with non-scientists and has regularly volunteered in his community as a science writer and communicator.
