Delano Campos De Oliveira
Environmental Science Associate, ARM Aerosol Observing System Group, Environmental and Climate Sciences Department
Research Technologist with 3+ years of experience working for the Atmospheric Physics Laboratory (LFA) from University of São Paulo (USP) and for Max Planck Institut für Chemie (MPIC), specializing in advanced instruments that measure clouds, precipitation, aerosols, and radiation. Delano have worked on deployment and management of two remote sites, first at Rio Branco (Acre, Brazil) in a intensive four months burning season campaign and second at Campina site (4.5 kilometers far from ATTO site), and Technical-lead/Enginner at Amazon Tall Tower Observatory (ATTO) site. Within this position Delano had to extensively work with instruments such as: Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitors (ACSM), Aethalometers, Aerodynamic Particle Sizers (APS), Cloud Condensation Nuclei Particle Counter (CCN), Carbon Monoxide Analyzer, Condensation Particle Counter (CPC), Greenhouse Gas Monitor (GHG), Nephelometer, Nitrogen Oxides Monitor (NOX), Ozone Monitor, Scanning Mobility Particle Sizer (SMPS), Single Particle Soot Photometer (SP2), Sun/Moon Photometer and Ultra-High Sensitivity Aerosol Spectrometer (UHSAS). Now Delano is an Associate to Aerosol Observing System (AOS) group. Furthermore, Delano has BSc. in Information Technology and also a MSc. in Informatics.
