Bess Koffman, a Ph.D. student in the School of Earth and Climate Sciences, has won an NSF postdoctoral fellowship award. Next June, pending completion of her degree, she will begin work at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University and at Cornell University, investigating the role of New Zealand dust in global climate during the Last Glacial Maximum. The project will take place over the course of two years, and will include field work in New Zealand, geochemical analysis of samples from New Zealand and Antarctica, and a global climate modeling component. Details of the award can be found here: http://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward.do?AwardNumber=1204050. Bess’s current Ph.D. research focuses on dust in Antarctic ice cores.
