Beatriz Herrera

Beatriz Herrera is a current Ph.D. student at the University of Toronto. She is a member of the Atmospheric Physics and Chemistry research group under the supervision of Dr. Kimberly Strong. Beatriz’s scientific career started in Mexico City. She studied for a bachelor’s in chemistry and the Master in Chemical Sciences at the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM). Her Master’s project was about the spatial and temporal distribution of ammonia (NH3) over Mexico City using Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) solar spectra measurements. Currently, Beatriz is working with FTIR data from different locations, including data from the PEARL Bruker 125HR, to continue the analysis of Arctic NH3 time series and enhancements during wildfires events. During the ACE-OSIRIS Arctic Campaign, Beatriz has the chance to work with the PEARL 125HR at Eureka for the first time.
