Health Co-benefits of Greenhouse Gas Mitigation

Abu Dhabi Metropolitan Area

Review background & final reports - About the research team

An international team of experts has been assembled to undertake the specific activities associated with the Health Co-benefits of Greenhouse Gas Mitigation sub-project. The project team consists of atmospheric scientists, air pollution specialists, engineers, and planners with proven research records in policy analysis. The structure of the project team consists of a Principal Investigator, research analysts and other significant contributors. An overview of each is provided in the bullets below.


  • Bill Dougherty. Bill served as PI of the sub-project. He is the President of the Climate Change Research Group where his work focuses on climate change issues related to vulnerability and adaptation, greenhouse gas mitigation, and greenhouse gas inventories. He supervised all modeling, analysis, tool development, and reporting.

  • Patrick Keys. Patrick served in the role of research analyst. He specializes in cutting-edge environmental research, ranging from climate change adaptation in Vietnam to water security in Colorado. Areas of focus include water resources, ecosystem services, and climate change adaptation using both technical computing tools and qualitative analysis. He is the founder of Keys Consulting Inc in 2011 in the State of Colorado where he is based.


  • David Yates. David is a Scientist in the Research Applications Laboratory at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), Boulder Colorado. David served as the link to the LNRCCP's regional atmospheric modeling outputs for which he was the Principal investigator. He provide all meteorological outputs for subsequent integration into air quality modeling.

  • Paul Kucera. Paul is a Project Scientist in the Research Applications Laboratory at NCAR. He provided technical assistance with Self Organizing Maps, source emissions processing and air quality modeling. He has over 20 years of field research experience and has been involved in over 12 field air quality programs.
