Gary Morris is an Associate Professor of Physics & Astronomy at Valparaiso University. He received his Ph.D.
in Space Physics & Astronomy from Rice University. Gary has
studied ozone since 1992 and has developed and employed models of
atmospheric chemistry and dynamics extensively in his research.
Gary applied for and received funding from the Shell Center for
Sustainability and NASA to begin this experiment on ozone pollution
Scott Hersey is a Rice undergraduate at Sid
Richardson College studying ecology and environmental engineering.
Scott prepares the instruments for measuring ozone and has been
involved in every launch at Rice. This August, Scott will be moving on to graduate school at Cal Tech.
Fraser earned his Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from the
California Institute of Technology. Matt is very involved in the
study of urban air quality in Houston. In addition to his research
focused on Houston air quality, he serves on the TCEQ’s Interim
Science Evaluation Committee, which is charged with evaluating the
scientific foundation of the TCEQ’s ozone control strategies.
Few has studied atmospheric electricity and dynamics for over
30 years, most of them at Rice University, where he received his
Ph.D. from the Department of Space Physics & Astronomy.
