Jakob Lindaas

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.

AGI Accepting Applications for the 2012-2013 William L. Fisher Congressional Geoscience Fellowship

What do energy resources for the future, understanding earthquakes to improve resiliency, and educating the next generation of geoscientists all have in common? Federal policymaking informed by the geosciences. If you are passionate about the role geoscience plays in the federal legislative process, consider applying for the American Geosciences Institute's William L. Fisher Congressional Geoscience Fellowship for 2012-2013. Successful applicants will have the opportunity to spend a year on Capitol Hill working in a congressional office and learning about the legislative process.
