Research Scientist, University of Washington
Dr. Hinkelman is a research scientist at the Joint Institute for the Study of the Atmosphere and Ocean of the University of Washington. Her research interests include the Earth's energy budget, long-term trends in surface insolation, and the effect of clouds on atmospheric radiative transfer. Dr. Hinkelman has worked extensively with ground-based measurements and satellite retrievals of solar fluxes as well as Monte Carlo radiative transfer computations. Her current projects focus on evaluating and applying measured radiation data.
