Melinda has been featured on the Student Spotlight for the Undergraduate Research Center – Sciences after receiving Outstanding Student Presentation Award at the 2020 AGU Fall Meeting. It has been published their website and social media, links below.
Two undergraduate researchers joined the group this Fall 2020. Mina Deshler is a senior undergraduate in AOS and Mansa Krishna is a 3rd year Applied Maths student. Both Mina and Mansa will be performing research related to wildfire smoke and it's impacts. Welcome!
Our group will be recruiting an UCLA undergraduate student through the JIFRESSE Summer Internship Program (JSIP). The project will be developed in collaboration with Kevin Bownman at NASA JPL. Submit an application through the link below if you are interested! For more details go to "Available oportunities" in the link below and see Project #2.
Xinxin Ye and Calvin Howes are joining the group on June 2018. Xinxin is joining as a postdoctoral researcher and will be working on topics related to the NOAA/NASA FIREX-AQ field campaign, while Calvin will join as a graduate student and will study aerosol-cloud-radiation interactions on the southeast Atlantic. Welcome to UCLA!
The project titled "Coordination, Evaluation and Ensemble Prediction of Multiple Atmospheric Composition Forecasts in Support of the FIREChem Campaign" led by Professor Saide jointly with national and international orgnizations was selected for funding by NASA. This project will bring together multiple forecasting systems to provide guidance during flight planning of the upcoming FIREX-AQ campign, a joint NOAA/NASA field program for summer 2019. Also, it will help improve our understanding of model skill when predicting biomass burning events and improve it looking to the future.
Pablo Saide is joining the Department of Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences at UCLA as an Assistant Professor with a joint appointment at the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability. Send him an email (email@example.com) if you are interested in working with him!
