With the Tata Center, he works on low-cost, high-performance air quality sensors.
The School of Engineering has announced that seven members of its faculty have been granted tenure by MIT.
“These newly tenured colleagues have demonstrated a commitment to outstanding research and teaching,” said Ian A. Waitz, dean of the School of Engineering. “They have made a significant impact on MIT and their fields, and we look forward to the continuation of their remarkable work.”
Jesse Kroll, associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. His research involves the experimental study of the properties and chemical transformation of organic species in the Earth’s atmosphere. Particular interests include the development of new analytical tools for the measurement and characterizations of organics in both the gas and condensed phase, and the use of these tools in the lab and field to better constrain the amount, nature, and chemical evolution of atmospheric organics.
