Neesha Schenpf

Neesha Schnepf and her geomagnetism research group works with space-based, airborne, marine, and in-situ magnetic field observatories to study changes in Earth’s magnetic field on a minute, hourly, daily, and yearly time frame. The primary application of this research is to improve navigation accuracy for land, sea, and airborne modes of transportation, to enhance satellite orientation, and to explore natural resources.

Ariel Morrison

Ariel Morrison’s research focuses on the physical processes of the Arctic climate system and how the Arctic is changing in a warming world. She uses satellite observations and climate models to study the relationships between clouds and sea ice. Her other research passion is geoscience education research: she uses biometric data to measure student engagement in climate change classes to improve undergraduate interest in and learning retention of climate science information.

Aditya Choukulkar

Aditya Choukulkar received his PhD from Arizona State University, where his research centered on developing a vector retrieval technique based on optimal interpolation for retrieving two-dimensional wind fields from a coherent Doppler lidar. His current research focus is on characterizing uncertainties associated with Doppler lidar measurements. This work will lead to improved understanding of wind and turbulence retrievals and ensure proper interpretation of observations when comparing to forecast models.

Mylène Jacquemart

Mylène Jacquemart is interested in the ways climate change influences the hazard disposition in our world's mountains and how we can use satellite and ground based remote sensing techniques to better understand and forecast these changes.

Jen Kay

Jen Kay is an assistant professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences and a CIRES Fellow at the University of Colorado Boulder. Prior to joining CU Boulder, she worked as a scientist in NCAR's Climate and Global Dynamics Division. Dr. Kay researches climate change, feedbacks, and variability, with a specific focus on connecting global coupled climate modeling with observed cloud, precipitation, and sea ice processes.

Emily Fairfax

Emily Fairfax double majored in chemistry and physics as an undergraduate at Carleton College, and now studies hydrology within the Department of Geological Sciences at CU. Her research focuses on the ecohydrology of riparian areas, particularly those that have been impacted by beaver damming. She uses a combination of remote sensing, modeling, and field work to understand how beaver damming changes these landscapes and on what timescales those changes operate.

Mallory Choudoir

Mallory Choudoir is a microbial ecologist and evolutionary biologist interested in the evolutionary processes and ecological interactions that drive patterns of microbial biogeography across spatial, environmental, and temporal scales.
