MS Student, Environmental Science
DePaul University

My name is Aarti Mistry, and I am currently an MS student at DePaul University (Chicago, IL). My major is Environmental Science, and my research interest is broadly in air quality. I enjoy exploring and asking research questions that intersect air quality with urban ecosystems, vegetation, and locations. These relationships have allowed me to address concerns like invasive species, drought, salt-stress, climate change, and forest composition. Moreover, these questions have evolved how I see cities as urban residents. I think scientific research is one of the ways we can spark hope and change for the environment. Currently, I am writing my thesis and will graduate in the summer of 2021.
