Kimberly Mueller (Fed)

Kimberly Mueller, Ph.D., is a member of the Greenhouse Gas Measurement Program at the National Institute of Standards and Technology.  Her technical research focuses on characterizing urban and regional CO2 and CH4 emissions.  One key aspect of her work is to statistically assimilate trace gas measurements from various observational platforms (e.g. in-situ towers, aircraft, etc.) with assumed emission behavior.  Ultimately, her research is aimed at promoting the program’s goal of developing standardized GHG measurement methods that can be used by interested city, state, and federal actors.
