PRESENTATION


PresenterS

 v  Tyler Fox is the Group Leader for the Air Quality Modeling Group within the Air Quality Assessment Division of the Office of Air Quality Planning & Standards at the US Environmental Protection in Research Triangle Park, NC.

v  Clint Tillerson is a Physical Scientist in the Air Quality Modeling Group. Prior to joining the EPA, Clint worked in the private sector as a consultant and contractor for the EPA, primarily focused on the continued development of the AERMOD system. Clint is a member of the Dispersion Modeling Team within AQMG and continues to focus on the development, testing, and evaluation of AERMOD.

v  Chris Owen is a Physical Scientist in the Air Quality Modeling Group. Chris is leading the AERMOD development team and provides modeling support to the PSD and conformity communities. Chris is the primary point of contact for NO2, CO, and mobile source modeling issues and the technical lead on SILs development.

v  Kirk Baker is a Physical Scientist in the Air Quality Modeling Group. Kirk is a point of contact on single-source and other chemical transport modeling applications, including the MERPs guidance.

v  Chris Misenis is a Meteorologist in the Air Quality Modeling Group. Chris is the primary point of contact for MMIF and other prognostic meteorological modeling applications.
