Carlos Szembek holds an M.F.A. from Carnegie Mellon University, a B.S. in Atmospheric Science from University of Massachusetts Lowell, and an M.S. in Climate Dynamics from Yale University. While at UML Carlos was the president of the student chapter of the American Meteorological Society. He spent two summers taking part in NSF funded research programs in micrometeorology (through Clark Atlanta University; Atlanta, GA) and Arctic Climate (through Mount Holyoke College; Amherst, MA) on a glacier in Svalbard, Norway. Carlos is currently working at the Westford facility of AECOM. His research focuses on half-width and line shift for ozone transitions in the Earth’s atmosphere in support of satellite measurement campaigns such as NASA’s Earth Observing System (EOS) satellites Aqua and Aura and the European Space Agency’s MASTER and SOPRANO instruments. Future research projects will include working on Air/Sea Coupled General Circulation Models (GCMs) as well as the impact of “global dimming” on climate model parameterization.
