Stefano Cucurachi
Postdoctoral Associate

 

scucurachi [at] bren [dot] ucsb [dot] edu

Stefano is taking care of the harmonization of the overall architecture of CLiCC and making sure the modules are integrated until the end result is presented to the users of the tool. He is also dealing with LCA-related methodological aspects of CliCC.​

PhD Student Researcher, Chemical Engineering


jfrumkin [at] engineering [dot] ucsb [dot] edu

Jeff is developing the Chemical Process Design Module to determine life cycle inventory data and determine upper bounds on selectivity.​

Graduate Student Researcher, Bren School of Environmental Science & Management


kgarner [at] umail [dot] ucsb [dot] edu

Kendra is developing the fate and transport module that predicts what happens to chemicals and where they accumulate once released into the environment.


ju_yiting.jpgYiting Ju
Graduate Student Researcher, Department of Geography 


yju [at] umail [dot] ucsb [dot] edu

Yiting's responsibility for the CLiCC project is to add semantic technology to the project, including building an ontology model for the project and creating a triple store to hold data.​

li_dingsheng.jpgDingsheng Li
Postdoctoral Scholar


dli [at] engineering [dot] ucsb [dot] edu

Dingsheng's contributions in the CLiCC project focus on two aspects: 1) identifying the most important chemicals released during use-phase of products of concerns that posses human health risks; 2) modeling human exposure to chemicals in both long-range exposure and close-range exposure in order to evaluate their risks to human health. ​

PhD Student Researcher, Bren School of Environmental Science & Management


jperkins [at] umail [dot] ucsb [dot] edu

Jessica is working with CLiCC's industry partners and regulatory collaborators to develop case studies through pilot testing the tool and it's individual modules.  She will be using these examples and additional feedback to design the output visualization for the CLiCC tool. 


qin_yuwei.jpgYuwei Qin
PhD Student Researcher, Bren School of Environmental Science & Management


yuweiqin [at] umail [dot] ucsb [dot] edu

Yuwei works on uncertainty analysis of the CLiCC tool and the application of the tool in policy setting.

Graduate Student Researcher, Bren School of Environmental Science and Management


ssonar [at] bren [dot] ucsb [dot] edu

Shreya's role in the CLiCC project is to assist in climate and hydrology data collection for major U.S. cities that represent different environments. This data will aid in modeling transport pathways for chemicals and nanomaterials.​



song_runsheng.jpgRunsheng Song
PhD Student Researcher, Bren School of Environmental Science & Management


runsheng [at] umail [dot] ucsb [dot] edu

Runsheng is working on a predictive model for chemicals Life Cycle Inventory(LCI) estimation, chemical toxicity, and a likely application prediction base on chemical descriptors. 



tao_mengya.jpgMengya Tao
PhD Student Researcher, Bren School of Environmental Science & Management

 
mtao [at] bren [dot] ucsb [dot] edu

In the CLiCC project, Mengya's research is mainly focused on the study of QSAR (Quantitative-Structure-Activity-Relationship) model and its application in predicting a chemical’s physicochemical properties, ecological and human health effects.
