Prof. Dr. Rita Yuri Ynoue is a Professor at the Institute of Astronomy, Geophysics and Atmospheric Sciences (IAG), University of São Paulo, Brazil. She holds a Master and Doctorate degree in Meteorology from the IAG where she studied the influence of using prognostic meteorological fields simulated by the RAMS mesoscale model as input for the CIT photochemical model for the Metropolitan Region of São Paulo (Andrade et al., 2004). During her PhD, she participated in experimental field campaigns, sampling and analyzing aerosols (Ynoue and Andrade, 2004).
She has also coupled the aerosol module from CAMx model with the CIT photochemical model (Ynoue, 2004). During her postdoctoral research, she started working with the SMOKE emissions model (Albuquerque, 2010). In 2006 she started as USP faculty from and has participated in several environmental and inside-tunnels experimental campaigns (Sanchez-Ccoyllo, 2009; Martinst et al., 2010; Albuquerque et al., 2012).
From 2008, she began to use the meteorological model WRF and from 2009, the WRF-CHEM model (operational forecast available at: http://www.lapat.iag.usp.br/aerossol/wrf9/index.php). My main research field is urban air pollutants emission.
Contribution to the ASTRID project: numerical modeling of air pollution data.
