David Wilmouth

David Wilmouth received his B.S. summa cum laude in Chemistry from the College of William and Mary in 1996 and his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry from Harvard University in 2002. Dr. Wilmouth currently holds a Research Scientist position at Harvard University, where his area of research is atmospheric chemistry, with particular focus on photochemistry and catalysis in the stratosphere. His research bridges work in laboratory studies, field experiments, and atmospheric modeling. He is currently the Principal Investigator on NASA and NSF grants covering topics that range from (a) laboratory kinetics and spectroscopy to (b) aircraft field measurements of halogen radicals and water vapor to (c) modeling the impact of future volcanic eruptions on stratospheric ozone. Dr. Wilmouth is an invited member of the NASA Panel for Data Evaluation, which evaluates laboratory kinetics and spectroscopic data and periodically publishes the highly cited JPL compendium, Chemical Kinetics and Photochemical Data for Use in Atmospheric Studies. He recently served as an invited reviewer of the 2018 WMO Ozone Assessment.
