BOTHELL, Wash. – Dan Jaffe, Ph.D., Professor of Atmospheric and Environmental Chemistry in the School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics at the University of Washington Bothell, has received a 2013-14 Fulbright Award.

Jaffe will spend a quarter as the distinguished chair in environmental sciences at the Parthenope, University of Naples, Italy. He is expected to travel to Naples in spring, 2014.

“This is a very exciting opportunity to go somewhere new and interact with people who are interested in sustainability,” Jaffe says. “I am looking forward to interacting with students from another culture.”

Jaffe will conduct research with colleagues based in Rome, and will also teach classes at the University of Naples.

Jaffe is a leading expert in global and regional atmospheric pollution, especially mercury, carbon monoxide, ozone, nitrogen oxides, aerosols and other metals and in long-range transport of air pollution in the Arctic and Pacific regions. Jaffe’s research in environmental science has been internationally recognized. Through the Jaffe Research Group, Jaffe and UW Bothell students conduct studies to identify particulate matter from trains, especially coal trains. He frequently speaks on risks around climate, mercury, ozone and local air quality impact.
