We will soon be hiring a postdoctoral researcher to work on the role of ash in the long-range developing of volcanic plumes. This position is funded through the NASA project Tracking volcanic gases from magma reservoir to the atmosphere: identifying precursors and optimizing models and satellite observations for future major eruptions (PI S. Carn). The position requires excellent programming skills and experience with Earth's system models and/or aerosol models. While the position is not yet officially open, feel free to send me an email for more information if you are interested on working on this project.
Graduate and undergraduate students
I am looking for graduate and undergraduate students to work on the impacts of volcanic eruptions on the climate, as well as the role of volcanic ash in the forecast of the plume transport, which is essential for aviation safety. I am also looking for undergraduate students to evaluate the NASA Goddard Earth Observing System Chemistry Climate Model (GEOSCCM) against satellite-, ground-, and airborne observations with respect to atmospheric composition. A good knowledge of computer programming, preferably in Python, is necessary to work on these projects.
I am always happy to discuss new projects and opportunities. If you have a project in mind and would like to work with me, do not hesitate to contact me with your research interests and skills.
