Focus Carolina: Will Vizuete

Will Vizuete is an associate professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering in the Gillings School of Global Public Health. The focus of his research is atmospheric chemistry and the formation of air pollution. Vizuete uses high performance computers and three-dimensional simulations to model the atmosphere to try to improve our understanding about how air pollution forms. This knowledge allows us to improve the tools and methods that policymakers use to make effective strategies to improve air quality, creating a healthier environment for everyone.
