2020-2021 William L. Fisher Congressional Geoscience Fellow

In 2020, Jakob Lindaas was working toward completing his Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University (CSU). Lindaas studied local ozone air pollution in Colorado as well as nitrogen-containing gases and particles in western U.S. wildfire smoke. His scholarly focus on atmospheric chemistry and air quality research made him passionate about connecting geoscientists to public policy and supporting active scientific participation in public decision-making processes.

Previously, Lindaas earned a master's degree in Atmospheric Science from CSU and a B.A. in Environmental Science and Public Policy from Harvard University. Prior to enrolling in graduate school, he worked as a research assistant in the Harvard Earth and Planetary Science Department focusing on greenhouse gas flux estimates from urban and arctic environments.
