About Dr. Wagstrom

Dr. Wagstrom is an expert in air pollution. She is leading the monitoring campaign testing the effectiveness of the Corsi-Rosenthal boxes in settings throughout Connecticut. In addition, she specializes in applying computational engineering-based approaches to address problems related to air pollution and atmospheric chemistry. This includes creating new and expanded modeling approaches, using community-developed computational tools to directly answer pressing scientific questions, using low-cost monitoring tools to expand the observational data available for model evaluation and development, and addressing local air pollution concerns posed by community partners.

Here are some Dr. Wagstroms awards and honors she was received throughout the years:

  • 2018-2023, National Science Foundation CAREER Award
  • 2018, CBE Faculty Research Award, UConn
  • 2018, CBE Faculty Teaching Award, UConn
  • 2015, Service Learning Faculty Fellow, UConn
  • 2012-2013, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science and Technology Policy Fellowship
