2018 Libby Lecture: Air Pollution in a Changing World: Designing Research for Impact

April 10, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Noelle Eckley Selin

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Noelle Eckley Selin will be giving the annual lecture on Tuesday, April 10th at 4 pm in the McIntire Room of the Buchanan Alumni House. A reception featuring refreshments and food will begin immediately preceding the lecture at 3:30 pm directly outside the McIntire Room in Leadership Hall.

Dr. Selin’s talk will focus on her work as an Associate Professor in the Institute for Data, Systems and Society and the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Her research uses atmospheric chemistry modeling and interdisciplinary methods to inform decision-making on air pollution, climate change and hazardous substances such as mercury.

Dr. Selin will describe multiple partnership and engagement models for doing research in ways that inform people making decisions about environmental policy in local, state, and federal contexts. This talk will be of interest to those who are working to connect science with decision making to inform policy and will provide the audience with tangible examples and engagement strategies. For more information on Dr. Selin’s work, please visit her website.

The Libby Lecture in Resource Policy was established at the University of Maine Foundation in 2016 with a gift from Lawrence W. Libby and Lois Murdock Libby. The annual lecture is a collaborative event coordinated by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the College of Natural Sciences, Forestry, and Agriculture. It is free and open to the public.

Lawrence and Lois Libby are both alumni of UMaine. They have dedicated their careers to resource economics, public policy, and in improving civil rights and economic conditions for minorities, women and the disabled.
