Dr Maria Angeles Solera Garcia

Senior Research Associate

Research Overview

I manage the 'Breathe Easier' umbrella project. This project is a partnership between the Environment Agency (EA) and Lancaster University (LU). Breathe Easier works on the adaptation of an existing joint EA/LU patent for a Directional Passive Air-quality Sampler (DPAS) to monitor fugitive pollutants (particulates, ammonia & radionuclides) for source attribution.

I also have a background in hydrology, time series analysis and climate modelling from my PhD: Analysis of hydro-climatic interactions in SE Asia using Data Based Modelling.
