Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering & Earth Sciences

Education: B.S. in Civil Engineering, Loyola Marymount University, USA, 2018

Research Interests:

Mariana is interested in atmospheric modelling and analysis for the study of the nexus between environment and society. Her previous projects include analyzing the relationship between particulate air pollution, meteorology, and wildfire occurrence; and developing a new extrapolation model for use in wind energy assessments. Her current focus is on developing a methodology that can identify efficient pathways for uncertainty reduction of air pollution risk estimates.
