Biography

Mauzerall's research group explores the interconnections between air pollution and health, energy, and climate change. Her research has examined the adverse impacts of air pollution on public health and agriculture with a particular focus on China, established source-receptor relationships for air pollution between continents and individual states in the U.S., explored short-comings of national cap-and-trade programs for nitrogen oxide emissions, quantified the co-benefits of reductions in the emissions of ozone precursors for air quality and climate change, and examined the benefit that methane emission controls can have on reducing background ozone concentrations and hence on reducing associated impacts on human health and climate change. Mauzerall has held positions in the Global Change Division of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in Washington, D.C., where she helped implement the Montreal Protocol, the international treaty protecting the stratospheric ozone layer. She has also has worked as an environmental consultant as well as at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado.
