Pablo Saide - PostDoc
Pablo Saide is Postdoctoral scholar working with Professor Gregory Carmichael. He is a mechanical engineer and has a master in Mechanical engineering from Universidad de Chile, where he is originally from. He also has a PhD in Environmental Engineering in the University of Iowa. He was nominated "Outstanding Student" during all his years as engineering and master student and has obtained several scholarships like a CONICYT master scholarship and a Fulbright-CONICYT PhD scholarship. He has presented in several conferences and workshops in many countries as Chile, Argentina, Brazil, France, Canada, UK and USA. He made research stays at EMPA (Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology, Switzerland), in CEREA (Center for education and research in the atmospheric environment) at ENPC (Ecole des Ponts ParisTech, France), and at NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research) and participated in the NASA SEAC4RS field experiment. His research is based in air quality modeling with focus on several areas like emissions, local air quality models, data assimilation and aerosol-cloud-radiation interactions. He is involved in several projects at CGRER such as Air quality forecasting for Santiago de Chile, development of WRF-Chem adjoint , long range transport of smoke to the US examining its effects on severe weather, using satellite data to improve air quality forecasts, and providing forecasts for field experiments for flight planning and near real-time analysis.
