Martin Wolf is an atmospheric chemist who studies the effects of aerosols on climate. His current research focuses on the role of particle chemistry in cloud nucleation, the radiative budget, and precipitation. He is also studying the effects of energy policy on anthropogenic particulate emissions.

Martin’s goal for this cruise is to examine how sea spray aerosol composition correlates with marine primary productivity. He plans to collect sea spray aerosol samples and study the chemistry and cloud formation potential of these particles in his lab’s cloud chambers back on land.

Martin received a B.S.E. in Biochemical Engineering from Princeton University in 2015. He is currently a PhD student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
