Environmental challenges of aviation

How can engineers and policymakers address the environmental challenges in aviation? That is the question at the heart of Irene Dedoussi’s research. She uses models and measurements to analyse how emissions from the aviation industry and other sectors affect the atmosphere, leading to air pollution and impacting the climate. As a member of The Young Academy, Dedoussi will advocate for interdisciplinary research and work to ensure that scientific advances are not confined to academia but are applied in decision-making and in real-world contexts.
