Pronoun: he/him/his

Dr. Adebiyi's research focuses on understanding the impacts of atmospheric aerosols, such as dust and smoke, on the regional and global climate. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Life and Environmental Sciences at the University of California - Merced, and he is also a member of the Environmental Systems Graduate Group at the same university. Before joining UC Merced, he was a University of California President's Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of California - Los Angeles. He obtained his M.Sc.-equivalent diploma in Earth System Physics at the International Center for Theoretical Physics, Trieste, Italy, and his Ph.D. in Meteorology and Physical Oceanography from the University of Miami, Florida.
