UW atmospheric scientist bridges science, policy, public health to bring space-based data to the world

For Tracey Holloway, it’s all about connection. Connections between research and policy, connections between air quality and health, and interpersonal connections have driven Holloway, a professor in the Nelson Institute and the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences. The connections she makes with her team, her lab group, her department and her mentees every day drive her further. “We’re here to help launch student careers, and that, to me, is one of the most fun and rewarding parts about working at the university,” Holloway says. Related State Journal story: Holloway teaches moms about climate change.
