Dr. Bond joined the faculty in the department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in 2003. Since 2007, she is also an Affiliate Professor in Atmospheric Sciences. She teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in air quality monitoring and modeling.

Dr. Bond is a member of American Geophysical Union and American Association for Aerosol Research, and an Editor at Aerosol Science and Technology. She recently served on a National Academy of Sciences committee regarding the international transport of air pollutants. She holds a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Washington, an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering (UC Berkeley) and an Interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences, Civil Engineering and Mechanical Engineering (University of Washington, 2000).

Awards include the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Fellowship (2014), an NSF CAREER grant (2004-present),  the Arthur and Virginia Nauman Faculty Scholar Award (2006-present), the Xerox Award for Faculty Research (2007), a Center for Advanced Study Fellowship at the University of Illinois (2008), and a NOAA Climate and Global Change Postdoctoral Fellowship (2000-2002).

Research Overview: 

Dr. Bond's research addresses the interface between energy use, atmospheric composition, and global climate. Her group studies the chemistry, physics, and optics that govern the environmental impacts of combustion effluents, especially carbonaceous particles. Her research includes development of past, present and future global emission inventories, global simulations of aerosol transport and fate, and laboratory and field measurements of particle emission rates and properties.
