Hannah S. Kenagy


NSF Postdoctoral Fellow

Dept. of Civil & Env. Engineering, MIT

Hannah will be starting as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota in January 2025. Please get in touch if you are interested in working in the group as a student or post-doc!

Hannah S. Kenagy (she/her) is an NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellow studying atmospheric chemistry at MIT with Prof. Jesse Kroll and Prof. Colette Heald. Previously, Hannah received a BS in Chemistry from the University of Chicago in 2016 and a PhD in Chemistry with Prof. Ron Cohen from UC Berkeley in 2021. Hannah’s work uses an integrated combination of measurement and modeling tools to study atmospheric chemical pathways that contribute to the production and fate of air pollutants globally.

During her PhD, Hannah used a combination of airborne field observations and computational modeling techniques to study the chemistry of nitrogen oxides in urban environments, with a particular focus on nighttime and condensed phase chemistry. Click here to read Hannah’s PhD dissertation.

As a post-doc, Hannah is integrating modeling and laboratory studies to improve our understanding of atmospheric organic aerosol chemistry.
