University of Colorado at Boulder
Faculty Profile

Daven Henze is an associate professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado, Boulder. His research focuses on the role that atmospheric constituents such as ozone, nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (aerosols) play in local air quality, long range pollution transport, and climate change.

Daven’s HAQAST project will expand upon previous work providing remote-sensing and model-based estimates of exposure and health-impact response coefficients to the Climate and Clean Air Coalition (CCAC) of the United Nations Environment Programme. For our core project, we will continue to strengthen the applicability and scope of LEAP-IBC through updates to the remote sensing observations and modeling framework used in the toolkit. We will implement new multi-satellite fusion constraints on surface-level PM2.5 from CALIPSO, MISR, MODIS and SeaWiFS directly into LEAP-IBC for improved accuracy and km-scale evaluation of air pollution exposure.
