Vaishali Naik

Research Associate (STEP 2003-2007)

I am currently working with Michael Oppenheimer, Director, STEP Program at the Woodrow Wilson School. My research interests include atmosphere-biosphere interactions, global atmospheric chemistry modeling, and climate change and its impacts on terrestrial biospheric processes.
