Do-It-Yourself Air Monitoring – Explore the Atmosphere and Turn on Light Bulbs!
Dr. Gayle Hagler
Dr. Gayle Hagler is an environmental engineer working at the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency in the Office of Research and Development. Her four-year-old son
describes her work as “Mommy does math, makes the air cleaner, plays with tools,
and goes to Hong Kong sometimes.” Her toddler describes it much more succinctly
(“Dubadubadub”). Gayle has measured air pollution all over the US and in other countries
and has developed some new ways to measure air pollution, including a park bench
instrumented with solar panels and air pollution instruments that transmit data
every minute to a website (villagegreen.epa.gov). She also had an once-in-a-lifetime
trip to the White House to meet the President and received the Presidential Early
Career Award in Science and Engineering (PECASE).
