      1. 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmDr. Nicole Riemer is an Associate Professor at the Department of Atmospheric Sciences and an Affiliate of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She received her doctorat degree from the University of Karlsruhe, Germany. Her research focus is the development of computer simulations that describe how aerosol particles are created, transported, and transformed in the atmosphere. Her group uses these simulations, together with observational and satellite data, to understand how aerosol particles impact human health, weather, and climate. This understanding guides the development of effective pollution mitigation strategies and responses to global climate change. Her teaching portfolio at the University of Illinois includes courses at the undergraduate as well as the graduate level, such as Atmospheric Thermodynamics, Cloud Physics, Atmospheric Radiation, Atmospheric Chemistry, Physical Meteorology, and Aerosol Dynamics and Chemistry. For her teaching she was listed multiple times for several courses on the “List of Teachers Ranked as Excellent”. Dr. Riemer is a member of the German National Academic Foundation and received the NSF CAREER award. She was designated as the 2014-2015 I. C. Gunsalus Scholar, is recipient of the 2014 Distinguished Promotion Award and received an NCSA Fellowship for 2017. She held the position of editor for the journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, and is currently an editor for Aerosol Science and Technology.
