Andy Grieshop

Associate Professor

Dr. Andy Grieshop is interested in sources and evolution of atmospheric aerosols, characterization of in-use emissions from mobile and stationary combustion sources, linkages between air pollution emissions and climate change, air pollution exposure assessment, technical policy analysis of the environmental impacts of energy systems, and energy and environment in developing countries. He is the faculty advisor for NCSU Chapter of Engineers Without Borders (EWB) and a member of the Executive Committee of the Triangle Research Initiative on Household Energy Transitions (TRI-HET).

Dr. Grieshop received his BS in Mechanical Engineering from UC Berkeley and his MS in Mechanical Engineering and PhD in Mechanical Engineering and Engineering and Public Policy from Carnegie Mellon University, where he was a member of the multi-disciplinary Center for Atmospheric Particle Studies (CAPS). He was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Resources, Environment and Sustainability and the Liu Institute for Global Issues at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, British Columbia.

Research Description

Dr. Grieshop's research focuses on interactions between energy use and the environment and more specifically on improving our technical understanding of the emission and atmospheric transformations of air pollutants. This work aims to inform effective policies to improve air quality and mitigate climate impacts in both developed and developing countries. Current research includes a collaborative project to quantify the emission, indoor concentration, and health and climate impacts of a cookstove replacement program in rural India and a project to characterize the atmospheric aging of emissions from these household energy systems. Other work has focused on air quality in near-road environments and on characterizing the volatility of organic particulate matter. His work integrates laboratory and field based experimentation with modeling and policy analysis efforts to address environmental problems.
