Revathi Muralidharan joined CICS as a Climate Data Analyst in May 2022. She received her BS in Molecular Toxicology in 2016 from UC Berkeley, where her research focused on indoor air pollution in lower income communities in Oakland, CA. This was also where she first developed an interest in transitioning her career into climate change, when she worked as an assistant to a local climate change and energy policy writer.

Revathi then worked as a federal contractor at ICF in Durham, where she contributed to human health risk assessment and exposure modeling projects. She then worked at Ramboll's Seattle office, where she provided technical support on site-specific risk assessments at Superfund sites. Finally, she joined the data team at University of Washington's Center for Clean Air Research (CCAR), where she provided technical and database management support on the multi-cohort air pollution epidemiology studies MESA and PATHWAYS.

Revathi completed her MS in Environmental Sciences and Engineering at UNC Chapel Hill in May 2022. As a member of the Climate Health and Air Quality Lab, her research was focused on mortality associated with long-term changes in PM2.5 and ozone across CONUS. She also conducted research investigating the protective effect of buildings during wildfires in California in 2020 at UNC Institute for the Environment.

Revathi is originally from Los Angeles and is excited to be able to get more in touch with her outdoorsy side in Asheville while diving deeper into climate change, methods in machine learning/AI, and atmospheric science. In her spare time, Revathi enjoys competitive powerlifting, hiking, collecting/upcycling vintage clothing, and spending time in bodies of water.
