From 2013 Dr. Gasore worked to set up the Rwanda Climate Observatory; a comprehensive field station that monitors atmospheric composition related to climate change, air pollution and ozone depletion.

The station is part of the MIT lead Advanced Global Atmospheric Gases Experiment (AGAGE), an international network measuring atmospheric composition using high-frequency in-situ measurements with standardized protocols and instrumentations. The Rwanda Climate Observatory is the only AGAGE station in Africa.

He used the observations from this monitoring sites to estimate regional emissions of carbon dioxide and methane as part of his PhD thesis. A thesis that earned the “Rossby awards” as the best thesis in the program in Atmosphere, Oceans and Climate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

During the past two years, Dr. Gasore was leading the Rwanda air quality monitoring project.
