MIT EAPS graduate students Diana Dumit and Lyssa Freese spoke with C&EN Stereo Chemistry podcast's Kerri Jansen about what drew them to climate science and what keeps them motivated when the questions—and the obstacles—are so vast. Diana's research is focused on microbes that live in areas of low dissolved oxygen in the ocean, and Lyssa works on air pollution and energy policy. She uses modeling to see the impact of various policy changes on particulate levels in various regions. A better understanding of those nuances, she says, could help inform better policy decisions.
