Prior to his role at NRDC, he worked for three years as a scientist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regional offices in San Francisco and Chicago, focusing on Clean Air Act regulatory implementation, risk communication, citizen science, and air-quality monitoring policy. Dr. Limaye has conducted interdisciplinary research quantifying the health impacts of climate change-triggered air pollution and heat waves for populations in the U.S. and India.
