Julieta Juncosa Calahorrano selected for UCAR Next Generation Fellowship
Ph.D. student Julieta Juncosa Calahorrano has been selected as a UCAR Next Generation Fellow for 2021-2023. She was awarded the Earth Science fellowship as part of the program’s fifth cohort.
The fellowship includes two summer internships at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). During the first summer, Juncosa Calahorrano will work with Alessandro Franchin and her CSU mentors to use a commercially available inertial inlet to separate particle- from gas-phase reactive nitrogen to get a true gas-phase measurement of oxidized nitrogen (NOy). The second summer, she will work with Gabriele Pfister on incorporating observations from the Transformation and Transportation of Ammonia (TRAN2AM) field intensive into the Weather Research and Forecasting model with chemistry (WRF-chem) to aid the interpretation of the observations and to validate and improve model outputs and parameterization.
“I am super excited for this opportunity and look forward to working with Ale and Gabi and getting to know the NCAR family better,” Juncosa Calahorrano said.
