Ting-Yu Cha awarded Taiwan Ministry of Education graduate fellowship
Ph.D. candidate Ting-Yu Cha, advised by Associate Professor Michael Bell, has received a two-year Government Scholarship to Study Abroad from the Taiwan Ministry of Education to study heavy rainfall in Taiwan.
Cha’s proposed project is “Examination of Dynamic and Thermodynamic processes of Heavy Precipitation over Taiwan with the upcoming PRECIP field campaign observations.” PRECIP, the Prediction of Rainfall Extremes Campaign in the Pacific, aims to improve understanding of the multi-scale processes important for generating extreme rainfall in the moisture-rich environment of Taiwan and the western North Pacific.
“I hope the research can improve our understanding of the fundamental processes that produce heavy rainfall,” Cha said. “I look forward to participating in the PRECIP field campaign next year!”
