Marissa is a research fellow in the Keith group studying the effects of marine cloud brightening on regional weather and climate. She is interested in understanding the potential for solar geoengineering to moderate synoptic-scale atmospheric dynamics that are increasingly driving disastrous weather extremes as the climate changes. She graduated from Harvard College '19 with a degree in environmental engineering and a secondary in environmental policy, and plans to pursue a PhD in climate and atmospheric sciences. Marissa's background includes research on decentralized renewable energy systems at ETH Zurich, research in agricultural land management for soil carbon sequestration at UC Berkeley, and project management experience in the commercial solar PV industry.
