Larry Di Girolamo

Larry Di Girolamo received the B.Sc. (Hons.) degree in astrophysics from Queen's University, Kingston, Canada, in 1989 and the M. Sc. and Ph.D. in atmospheric and oceanic sciences from McGill University, Montreal, Canada, in 1992 and 1996, respectively. He joined the faculty at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the Department of Atmospheric Sciences in 1998 and is currently a Blue Waters Professor. He teaches introductory courses on atmospheric science and advanced courses on satellite remote sensing and radiative transfer. His research interests include the remote sensing of cloud and aersosol properties, cloud-aerosol-climate interactions, 3-D radiative transfer through heterogeneous cloud fields, and sampling strategies for remotely sensed data. He is a Co-I of the MISR and MAIA (Multi-Angle Imager for Aerosols) missions. You can learn more about Prof. Di Girolamo’s research with MISR at
