Jonathan (Nate) Slade Joins the CAICE Faculty at UCSD

Welcome to the CAICE team!

Dr. Slade received his Ph.D. in Atmospheric Chemistry from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 2015, where he received the department’s best doctoral thesis award. He was subsequently a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Chemistry at Purdue University, where he led an NSF project as Principle Investigator to study the role of organic nitrates in new aerosol particle formation. Dr. Slade’s primary research interests are in the area of air pollution and atmospheric chemistry. His research at UCSD will build upon his previous experience in chemical kinetics, multiphase chemistry, and aerosol–climate interactions to unravel the fundamental chemical and physical processes involved in the formation, evolution, and toxicity of atmospheric aerosols, with an emphasis on coastal urban environments. He will teach courses in analytical and atmospheric chemistry, as well as instrumental analysis. In addition, Dr. Slade has extensive experience in educational outreach activities. While at Purdue University, he developed an outreach program for high school students to study indoor and outdoor air quality, and was keynote speaker for the NSF Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment (GLOBE) national meeting. He plans to engage in similar outreach activities at UCSD.
