Congratulations to Dr. Dylan Millet, who has been named a Distinguished McKnight University Professor. This program recognizes outstanding faculty members who have recently achieved full professor status. Recipients hold the title “Distinguished McKnight University Professor” for as long as they remain employed at the University of Minnesota.
Dylan Millet’s research seeks to understand the sources, atmospheric transformations, and impacts of key gases affecting air pollution, human and ecosystem health, and climate. His work ranges from polluted urban areas to remote environments, and helps untangle the roles of human activities versus natural processes in determining the chemical properties of Earth’s atmosphere. He combines in-situ measurements, satellite observations, and atmospheric modeling to advance scientific knowledge for more accurate air quality and climate predictions.
