Research Associate, Center for Environmental Modeling for Policy Development


Elizabeth Adams supports the CMAS Community Modeling Community for the U.S. EPA. Her recent initiative focuses on running air quality model on the cloud. She created CMAQ for Amazon Web Services Parallel Cluster Tutorial and Microsoft Azure Cycle Cloud Tutorials.  These cloud tutorials help users create high performance computing clusters for CMAQ using a reproducible, open source workflow to build CMAQ and run for a two-day CMAQ 12km CONUS domain benchmarks with post-processing scripts for quality assurance and timing analysis of the results. These research and development efforts will help the modeling community run CMAQ for larger domains, finer resolutions, and for longer time periods, with faster time to solution for the modeling community.
