Alba Badia Moragas
Alba holds a PhD in Environmental Engineering from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC) – Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) and an MSc in Applied Mathematical Sciences with Climate Change Impacts Modeling from the Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh. Her bachelor’s degree in Mathematics is from the Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (UAB). Her previous postdoctoral research was focused on quantifying the importance of reactive halogens and very-short-lived halocarbons in the marine atmosphere using the regional model WRF-Chem in the Environmental Department at the University of East Anglia (UEA), and the climate model CAM-Chem in the department of Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate at the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). Currently, she is studying how green infrastructures (in various forms from peri-urban agriculture to green roofs) impact the urban atmosphere (e.g. humidity, temperature, and air quality) using the WRF and WRF-Chem models with urban canopy models.
