Senior Research Asssociate, University of Cambridge

Dr Molly Haugen is a Senior Research Associate in Emissions Measurement at the University of Cambridge. Her work with Prof Epaminondas Mastorakos (Cambridge PI on the C4T IRP4 programme) focuses on plume dispersion in ports and urban environments. Her projects include:

1. Using drones to measure maritime emissions for use by political, academic, industrial, and regulatory industries
2. Developing an easy-to-use, low-cost particle counter (commercialization and laboratory experiments)
3. Development of tyre and brake wear generation rigs (large-scale and bench-top versions)
4. Generating brake and tyres wear to characterize particle metrics and toxicological effects

Dr Haugen visited CARES as a Visiting Scientist in April 2023 where she delivered a talk in CREATE and a drone demo.
