Project Description

Dr. Pratt is currently the Seyhan N. Ege Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the University of Michigan, where she also holds a courtesy appointment in the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences. She received her B.S. degree in chemistry from Penn State University, followed by her Ph.D. in chemistry from the University of California, San Diego. Dr. Pratt’s environmental chemistry research laboratory studies atmospheric composition, clouds, and precipitation to understand key processes in air quality and climate change, particularly across the Alaska outer continental shelf. Her lab also examines air pollution contributions of oil extraction activities at coastal Prudhoe Bay, the third largest oilfield in North America. Recently, Dr. Pratt developed an innovative course featuring original Arctic snow chemistry research to introduce first- and second-year college students to scientific research to improve STEM retention.
