Professor Ann Marie Grover Carlton, Ph.D.

Ann Marie Carlton is a professor and vice chair of chemistry at the University of California, Irvine, with deep experience in government and academia. She has been awarded dozens of grants to investigate atmospheric chemistry from various institutions, including the National Science Foundation, NOAA, NASA, EPA, USDA, and DoD. Carlton is a reviewing editor for the journal Science, and the winner of multiple awards and fellowships, notably the quadrennial Roger Revelle Fellowship for Global Stewardship from the American Association for the Advancement of Science. In this fellowship, she advised the Biden administration on climate and the environment with focus on agriculture, greenhouse gas monitoring, and climate intervention in the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, beginning in September 2021. She is the scientific leader on the Southern Oxidant & Aerosol Study (SOAS), a multi-million dollar atmospheric chemistry field project for which the short documentary Skycatcher was made.

Prior to her doctorate, Carlton was an environmental engineer with the United States Environmental Protection Agency in the agency's New York City-based second region, where she worked with State Agencies to implement the PM2.5 network and design quality assurance protocols. Following her Ph.D., Carlton worked as a research physical scientist for NOAA’s Air Resources Laboratory from 2006 to 2008 and as a physical scientist for the EPA Office of Research and Development from 2008 to 2010, both in Research Triangle Park, NC. In this role, Professor Carlton was a developer of the EPA's chief air quality model CMAQ and was responsible for model representation of cloud and particle chemistry, for which her team was awarded a gold medal and a Scientific and Technological Achievement Award from the EPA.

Carlton was a member of the National Research Committee tasked with directing atmospheric chemistry research over the coming decades. She is an editor of Reviews of Geophysics and serves on the advisory board of the Royal Society of Chemistry’s Environmental Science: Atmosphere. Carlton was elected to co-chair of the Gordon Conference on atmospheric chemistry in 2019.

Carlton holds B.S. and M.S. degrees in Bioenvironmental Engineering and a Ph.D. in environmental science, all from Rutgers University in New Brunswick, NJ. She is a licensed professional engineer.
