Research Interests:
Colin Pike-Thackray is working with Prof. Noelle Selin to support the modeling work on the economic and health impacts of potential air quality scenarios. Prior to joining the Selin group at MIT, Colin completed his Master's degree at Dalhousie University, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. His project there was a numerical reconstruction of historical surface energy fluxes in the Canadian High Arctic. During his time with Dalhousie, Colin also worked with the CANDAC RMR LiDAR at Eureka, Nunavut.
