Dr. Sebastian Eastman
Seb is a Research Scientist in the Laboratory for Aviation and the Environment (LAE; lae.mit.edu) in the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics. His research is focused on the development, refinement, and application of cutting edge global atmospheric models to enable use to better understand the long-term consequences of emissions. This includes quantifying and understanding ozone depletion from aerospace emissions, novel use of satellite data to improve model predictions, the relationship between stratospheric ozone and public health, and the interactions between climate change and air pollution. He received his PhD from MIT in 2015, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship at Harvard University in the Atmospheric Chemistry and Modeling Group and dually supported by the NOAA Climate and Global Change Program and the Harvard University Center for the Environment.
