Graduate Student Angelie Nieves Jiménez Flies into a Hurricane

The Colorado Sun wrote an article on ATS graduate student Angelie Nieves Jiménez, who recently flew on a NOAA Hurricane Hunter mission into Hurricane Franklin. The story recounts Angelie’s experiences during her undergraduate studies in Puerto Rico, when a major hurricane devastated the island and severely affected the health and livelihoods of her family and friends. The article also discusses the motivation she gained from this experience to help make better hurricane predictions, which she is now doing as a student in ATS under the advising of Prof. Michael Bell.
