Vanessa Caicedo


Assistant Research Scientist

Joint Center for Earth Systems Technology


Ph.D. Atmospheric Science, University of Houston


Dr. Caicedo obtained a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Houston where her research was based upon the retrieval of the planetary boundary layer height, coastal boundary layer evolution and climatology, and the evaluation of observed and simulated boundary layer dynamics in urban-coastal environments using remote sensing methods. 

Research Interests

Her research interests include atmospheric remote sensing, planetary boundary-layer dynamics, air quality modeling, bay/sea-breeze effects on planetary boundary layer and air quality.
