Lindsey Weger joined the IASS as a junior researcher in 2011 and initially investigated the activity of methane in the Representative Concentration Pathways (RCPs). In 2014, she explored methane cracking as a bridge technology to the hydrogen economy for her master’s thesis at the IASS. After that Lindsey began to examine the impact of potential shale gas development in Germany and the UK on emissions and air quality.
Lindsey gained her BSc in Biochemistry with a double minor in German and French at the University of Vermont, and subsequently obtained her MSc in Chemistry at RWTH Aachen University. After completing her master’s degree, Lindsey began her PhD at the IASS in conjunction with the Geosciences Department of the University of Potsdam, studying the impact of the energy transition on emissions and local and regional air quality. In addition to working for the IASS, Lindsey has worked at the CAT Catalytic Center at the RWTH Aachen, completed an internship through the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and studied abroad in Vienna, Austria.
