Hope A Michelsen
Distinguished Member of the Technical Staff in the Combustion Research Facility at Sandia National Laboratories. A.B. in Chemistry from Dartmouth College, Ph.D. in Chemistry with a minor in Physics from Stanford University. Elected Fellow of the Optical Society (OSA).
My current research interests include developing and using optical and X-ray techniques for studying the chemistry of combustion-generated particles inside the combustor and their evolution after release into the atmosphere. My research experience includes gas-surface scattering experiments, atmospheric modeling, soot-formation studies, combustion-diagnostics development, atmospheric black-carbon measurements, and greenhouse-gas source attribution.
