IIASA Alumnus Exploratory and Special Projects
Anni Reissell is currently Guest Research Scholar at IIASA and Science Coordinator at the University of Helsinki, Finland. She holds a PhD in chemistry, with thesis on ambient air and chamber studies of biogenic volatile organic compounds linking emissions, chemistry, meteorology and topography in the Los Angeles Basin area. Her diverse background includes radiopharmaceuticals, natural radioactivity, air quality measurements of inorganic and organic compounds, aerosol particles, development of methods and quality control procedures for sampling and analysis. Previous positions include research scientist at the Finnish Meteorological Institute, research chemist at the Air Pollution Research Center, University of California, Riverside, and Executive Director of the Integrated Land Ecosystem-Atmosphere Processes Study (iLEAPS).
Dr. Reissell’s interests are broad and encompass integrated land-ecosystem atmosphere processes in relation to climate change and global change, currently socio-economics as well in relation to the Arctic. She has over 20 years’ experience in chemistry and measurements, as well as global change research, international global change research programs and policies. Her experience also encompasses, for example, reviews of proposals and scientific articles, giving academic lectures and courses, supervising MSc and PhD students as well as other scientific and technical personnel, (co)organizing and (co)chairing numerous events from sessions to workshops and large conferences, (co)editor of proceedings. During her career, Anni Reissell has brought together scientific communities to work on new lines of thinking, across disciplinary and community boundaries.
