A Harrisburg University Data Science Ph.D. student will chair a session at the AGU Advancing Earth and Space Science Fall Meeting on Tuesday.

Lyra Wang will serve as the chair of a session titled, “New Technologies and Platforms to Measure Methane Emissions from Oil and Gas Operations: Methods, Data, and Insights,” at 2:30 p.m.

Wang’s methane reduction research is making waves in the environmental science research sector. Last year, she won ‘Overall Best Paper’ in the Tackling Climate Change with Machine Learning workshop at the NeurIPS2020 Conference.

The paper, written in collaboration with former HU Professor, Dr. Arvind Ravikumar; Selvaprabu Nadarajah of the University of Illinois at Chicago; and Jingfan Wang of Stanford University, is titled, “A Machine Learning Approach to Methane Emissions Mitigation in the Oil and Gas Industry.”
