Dana's research focuses on greenhouse gas emissions from natural gas infrastructure in the Marcellus. Her research interests include greenhouse gas emissions and inventories, boundary layer modeling and climate/policy interactions.


Graduate Students:


Da Pan

Da Pan

Da is interested in the interaction between nitrogen cycle and our society. Da's research focuses on ecosystem-atmosphere exchanges of nitrogen species (NH3, N2O). He uses advanced sensors to investigate the spatial and temporal characteristics of NH3 and N2O fluxes on different scales. With these measurements, he also studies the drivers and impacts of the spatiotemporal variations. He is also interested in how international trade influences nitrogen cycle.

Levi Golston

Levi Golston

Levi has been working on the development and deployment of a C2H6 sensor for our open-path mobile laboratory along with a lightweight CH4 sensor to meet the strict constraints need to operate on small unmanned aerial systems. His research works to improve methods for quantifying local-scale emissions using new measurements platforms with a focus on leakage of methane from natural gas systems. Levi is also interested in linking methane flux across spatial scales using multiple datasets.

Xuehui Guo

Xuehui Guo

Xuehui's research focus is atmospheric NH3 emissions and depositions. She has developed two QCL-based NH3 sensors to quantify biosphere fluxes within a natural forest. Xuehui is also working on the validation of satellite NH3 measurements using in-situ vertical profiles. Her future work will include combining satellite and in-situ data to better understand the spatiotemporal variability of NH3 emissions.
