Thomas Walker

Assistant Professor, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering


Dr. Walker is an Assistant Professor in Carleton University’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, whose research program focuses on atmospheric composition related to climate change and air quality, with a specific interest in short-lived climate pollutants such as ozone and methane. His research uses a combination of satellite remote sensing, global atmospheric chemical transport models, and data assimilation techniques to tackle problems such as attributing the radiative effect of ozone and methane directly back to precursor emissions changes. Before joining Carleton, Dr. Walker worked at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory as a Postdoctoral Fellow as a part of their Carbon Cycle and Ecosystems team.
