Alex DesRosiers selected to receive AMS fellowship

Alex DesRosiers, who will join Associate Professor Michael Bell’s group as an M.S. student in the fall, has been chosen to receive an American Meteorological Society Graduate Fellowship.

“I am thrilled for the privilege to be an AMS fellow,” DesRosiers said, after receiving notification from AMS President Roger Wakimoto. “Coming from a non-meteorology background with a desire to join that field, the AMS conference always provided an excellent spring board for me to network in the field I desired to join while learning about the many exciting projects going on this year.”

DesRosiers is currently an environmental engineering student at the University of Florida.

“The fellowship will help to fund my objective of studying the intensification process of tropical cyclones during my graduate studies in Dr. Michael¬†Bell’s research group. I also look forward to¬†growing professionally through the opportunities and events open to fellowship recipients at the AMS Annual Meeting,” he said.
