Dr. Gayle Hagler
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).
