Speaker: Dr. Benjamin de Foy

Benjamin is a professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences and the Banpu Chair in Sustainability at Saint Louis University. Dr. de Foy studied engineering at Cambridge University in England, and did his PhD in Computational Fluid Dynamics. After that, he worked for Earth Tech, Inc, in environmental engineering for two and a half years. He then returned to academia to work on the "mexico City Project" at MIT, doing computer modeling of air quality seeking solutions to Mexico City's air quality problem. His research is focused on the use of computer models and data mining to better understand emissions of air pollutants. He has more recently studied sources of mercury in the Midwest and sources of black carbon impacting St. Louis, as well as evidence of reduced air pollution over the USA and China detected by satalites. He teaches courses in atomspheric science, computer modeling and climate change.
