Four Atmos members named SoGES Sustainability Leadership Fellows
CSU’s School of Global Environmental Sustainability has selected two Atmospheric Science students and two Atmospheric Science postdoctoral fellows to be Sustainability Leadership Fellows for the next academic year – the most fellows chosen from a single department. Ph.D. candidate Ali Akherati, advised by Jeff Pierce and Shantanu Jathar (Mechanical Engineering); Ph.D. candidate Michael Cheeseman, advised by Jeff Pierce; postdoctoral fellow Zachary Labe, mentored by Elizabeth Barnes; and postdoctoral fellow Zane Martin, mentored by Eric Maloney and Elizabeth Barnes were among 20 early-career scientists chosen for the program.
The Sustainability Leadership Fellows program prepares future innovators and thought leaders with science communication and career development training. They learn to effectively communicate science to the media and public, and how to build successful careers that incorporate meaningful engagement and an interdisciplinary approach to research.
