Dr. Rao Kotamarthi is a Senior Scientist in the Environmental Science Division and has a PhD from the University of Iowa. Dr. Kotamarthi has nearly 30 years of experience in regional- and global-scale modeling of Air Quality and Atmospheric Composition, atmospheric aerosols, and regional scale climate change. He has authored over 150 journal articles and reports and is the author of a book titled ‘Downscaling Techniques for High-Resolution Climate Projections: From Global Change to Local Impacts”.
David Gartman is a program manager and the program development manager for the Environmental Science Division. His interests include developing programs for the multidisciplinary talent of researchers at Argonne National Laboratory.
Scott is an atmospheric scientist and head of the Geospatial Computing, Innovations, and Sensing (GCIS) department in the Environmental Science Division at Argonne National Laboratory. He is a Senior Fellow at the Northwestern Argonne Institute of Science and Engineering (NAISE). Scott’s research is at the intersection of data informatics, edge computing, atmospheric science, and radar meteorology. He uses and develops open-source tools to aid the development of next-generation climate models.
Lee is a landscape ecologist and head of the Ecology, Natural Resources, and Managed Systems Department in the Environmental Science Division (EVS) at Argonne National Laboratory. His work focuses on evaluating the environmental impacts of energy decisions and identifying energy-ecological synergies. He is interested in research and applications in the following areas: terrestrial/landscape ecology, sustainable energy development, geospatial modeling; and ecological impact evaluations of energy development.
