Evan Couzo is a Postdoctoral Associate in the Engineering Systems Division at MIT. His current work with MIT's Center for Complex Engineering Systems evaluates how sustainable development decisions in Saudi Arabia will affect air quality and health impacts. His research interests cover a broad range of air quality issues from pollutant formation to regulatory decision-making to public health.

Evan has studied the contribution of heterogeneous nitrous acid formation to oxidant chemistry and radical cycling in an urban environment. His past work has also investigated non-typical ozone formation in Houston, Texas.

Evan received his PhD from the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2013. He also holds a masters degree from the same institution, a masters degree in curriculum and instruction from the University of Mississippi, and a bachelors degree in physics from Williams College.

Before becoming an environmental scientist, Evan was a middle school math teacher in the Mississippi Delta. He enjoys hiking with his dog, cooking, and traveling.
