Abhishek Chatterjee, who works with Dr. Anna M. Michalak, was selected based on his outstanding academic record, and his research proposal entitled “Geostatistical Data Assimilation for the Orbiting Carbon Observatory.” Abhishek’s work focuses on developing sophisticated numerical approaches to mine massive remote sensing datasets for information about both the human and natural components of the Earth’s carbon cycle. Identifying and quantifying the processes controlling emissions and uptake of carbon dioxide is critical to predicting future changes to the climate system. The NESSF program is a highly competitive award for graduate students, valued at $90,000 over three years. Congratulations Abhishek!
