Lindsey Weger

Lindsey Weger is a PhD student at the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies (IASS) in Potsdam, Germany. Her PhD focuses on modelling the effects of air pollutant emissions from the German Energy Transition on local and regional air quality using the WRF-Chem atmospheric chemistry transport model. In her current project, she is looking at the air quality impacts of a potential shale gas development in Europe. Lindsey also worked on her master’s thesis at the IASS, in which she developed a model to quantify the impact of the hydrogen economy, facilitated by methane cracking, on CO2 and CH4 emissions. She received her BSc degree in Biochemistry at the University of Vermont in 2011 and her MSc degree in Chemistry at the RWTH Aachen University in 2015.
