Tracey Holloway, professor of environmental studies and atmospheric and oceanic sciences

About the talk

With every breath, we each benefit from the U.S. investment in clean air and public health. Today’s air — in Wisconsin and across the country — is cleaner than it has been in decades. Join us to learn about the chemistry and meteorology that affect the air we breathe. We will go behind the scenes of the UW–Madison research lab where students and scientists work to “see” air pollution with satellite data and use computer models that evaluate new energy options for clean air.


Holloway is a professor in the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. She leads an air-quality research program, working with undergraduates, graduate students, and professional researchers to advance understanding of air quality, energy, and climate. She leads a national team of scientists — the NASA Health and Air Quality Applied Sciences Team — which links satellite data with public health and air pollution. Holloway earned her undergraduate degree in applied mathematics from Brown University and her PhD in atmospheric and oceanic sciences from Princeton University.
