Ben Toms wins poster presentation award at tropical meteorology conference

Ben Toms, advised by Sue van den Heever, was recognized with an Outstanding Poster Presentation Award last week at the 33rd Conference on Hurricanes and Tropical Meteorology in Ponte Vedra, Florida. He received the award for his project “A Coherent Image of Teleconnections Across the Globe Associated with the Madden-Julian Oscillation,” co-authored by Elizabeth Barnes and Sue van den Heever. The poster was awarded the first-place prize in the Large-Scale Dynamics section.

Toms said the conference was a fantastic opportunity to meet brilliant tropical-minded scientists from across the country.

“My travel was sponsored by the MAC Foundation, so I am grateful for their support that allowed me to attend the conference.”
