Christina McCluskey receives DOE Science Graduate Student Research Award
Christina McCluskey, advised by Sonia Kreidenweis and Paul DeMott, has been selected by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Science to receive a graduate student research award. McCluskey is using the award for her project “Assessing numerical representations of marine ice nucleating particles in high latitude remote regions with novel observations.” She is working with scientist Susannah Burrows at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory for three months, through Oct. 17.
“[The award] has provided me with an opportunity to gain modeling experience, working with the DOE Community Earth System Model,” McCluskey said.
Earlier this year McCluskey also was awarded a National Center for Atmospheric Research Advanced Studies Program Postdoc Fellowship and the department’s Alumni Award.
