Mary A. Cameron is a researcher and course instructor in Stanford University's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Her research uses computational tools to study air pollution, global warming, and the renewable energy solutions that address both of these problems. Her Ph.D. research focused on developing techniques to more accurately model the the effects of aircraft exhaust on climate and air pollution. Her current research with The Solutions Project, explores the feasibility of stopping global warming, eliminating millions of premature air pollution mortalities, and maintaining a reliable electric grid by transitioning away from fossil fuels towards 100% renewable energy. Cameron is passionate about environmental justice and empowerment through education, and uses her background to help spread climate literacy wherever possible.
