2010 Recipient: Jose Luis Jimenez
The 2010 Rosenstiel Award Selection Committee announced the awarding of the 37th Rosenstiel Award to Dr. Jose Luis Jimenez, an associate professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Fellow of the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at the University of Colorado His work applies groundbreaking measurement techniques to atmospheric science, addressing critical questions regarding aerosols in our environment and their role in climate change and air quality. Besides pioneering multiple new techniques for measurement and data analysis with the AMS, Jimenez’s research accomplishments include the initial application of high-resolution time-of-flight mass spectrometry to the AMS, development of new data analysis software for these instruments, the discovery of the dominance of oxygenated species (OOA) in ambient organic aerosol, the development of eddy covariance flux measurements using the AMS, and the quantification of O/C, H/C, and N/C ratios for organic compounds from AMS observations. Jimenez received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1999. He obtained his Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering at both the Universidad de Zaragoza, Spain and the Université de Technologie de Compigne, France, in 1993.
