Former Research Scientist, Center for Global Change Science

Bio

Research Interests:
Dr. Huang was a research scientist with the MIT Center for Global Change Science for 17 years and a participant of the Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (AGAGE). Her research involved modeling the atmospheric lifetime and transport of various greenhouse and ozone depleting gases, and the optimal estimation of trace gas emissions using inverse methods including Kalman filtering. Her work focused on estimating the regional distributions of nitrous oxide, and investigation of the possible polar sources of methyl chloroform. She also investigated the possible causes of global trends in the sources and sinks of the hydroxyl radical, OH.
