Denise Mauzerall

Denise Mauzerall is a Professor of Environmental Engineering and International Affairs in the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University and in Princeton’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.

Her work is focused on utilizing science to inform the development of far-sighted air quality policy by exploring linkages between air pollution and health, energy, and climate change. Her recent research projects have examined the impacts of air pollution on agriculture and health in China, inter-continental transport of air pollutants, environmental consequences and alternatives to nitrogen oxide emissions trading, regional attribution of ozone production and associated radiative forcing to emissions from specific regions of the world, the benefits to air quality in China of increased penetration of wind power, and the benefit that methane emission controls can have on reducing background ozone concentrations and reducing associated impacts on human health and climate change.

She holds a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Chemistry from Harvard University and an M.S. in Environmental Engineering from Stanford University.
