Dr. Luisa Molina is currently the President of the Molina Center for Energy and the Environment (MCE2) and Principal Research Scientist at the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). She has been involved with the chemistry of stratospheric ozone depletion and urban air pollution. She demonstrated experimentally a new reaction sequence, which explains how CFCs caused the Antarctic ozone hole. Recently she initiated a multi-disciplinary project involving an integrated assessment of air pollution in megacities, aimed at improving the environmental decision making process through education and the better use of scientific, technical, and socio-economic understanding.
