Olalekan Balogun - Postdoctoral Fellow

Olalekan holds a Ph.D. in Physical Geography with a specialization in Climatology. His doctoral research focused on the impacts of climate change on mesoscale wind patterns, surface energy balance, and northern peatland carbon cycling in the Hudson Bay Lowlands region of Canada. Olalekan joined Prof. Debra Wunch’s group in May 2022. Funded by the Canadian Space Agency, his research is focused on understanding how satellite measurements of carbon monoxide can constrain Boreal Forest fire emissions and improve chemical transport and fire emissions models. In addition, he aims to help reduce the uncertainty in Canada’s anthropogenic methane emissions in urban areas.
