Youtong joins CIMES from the University of Maryland, as an associate research scholar working with Yi Ming. Youtong's research will center on understanding aerosols and clouds, using observations and models.
Noemi Vergopolan da Rocha
Noemi joins CIMES from Princeton's Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, as a postdoctoral research associate working with Elena Shevliakova. Noemi's research will focus on GFDL land model hydrological capacities, including assimilation of remote sensing of the soil moisture and other land surface data and implications of initialized and assimilated land surface information for the seasonal productivity of hydro-climatic extremes and earth system predictability.
Bosong joins CIMES from the University of Miami, as a postdoctoral research associate working with Ming Zhao. Bosong will be working on a cloud feedback project which examines the role of ocean coupling and sea surface temperture (SST) warming patterns on cloud feedbacks.
Cristina joins CIMES, from the University of Virginia, as a postdoctoral research associate working with John Dunne. Cristina's research will focus on comparing ocean biogeochemical Argo observations with GFDL models of the California Current System to assess modes of variability and the necessary scope of observations to constrain both regional boundary conditions and internal biogeochemical functioning towards optimizing observational design and interpretation for improved predictability of living marine resources.
