A portrait of Don Stedman

Donald Stedman- Professor, University of Denver

Professor Stedman was a pioneer in the field of remote sensing of vehicle emissions for over 20 years. Don has been a great source of inspiration to many emerging researchers in the field of air quality measurements and his contribution to this field is highly significant. We will all miss professor Stedman’s witty remarks, amazing insight and lovely poems, but he will be in our memories as a great person that we have all had the honor of knowing and working with.

The WVU CAFEE family expresses our deepest condolences to the family of Professor Stedman
