Clinton Smith, Electrical Engineering


As a member of Professor Wysocki’s research group, Clinton researches and develops novel methods and instruments for laser-based trace gas spectroscopy: focusing on developing a low-power, portable, CO2 sensor that can reliably, under varying environmental conditions, detect sub-ppm changes in CO2 concentration while deployed in the field.

Clinton also collaborates with Professor Zondlo in Civil and Environmental Engineering to develop a novel real-time calibration technique for integration with our portable sensors, and to fly one of the CO2 sensors on a UAV as part of a demonstration project for autonomous environmental sensing.
