Uday wins a NOAA post-doc!

In the midst of a very tough global landscape, I am so very happy to be able to share some extremely good news for one of the members of our research group.

The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration has selected Uday Thapa as a postdoctoral fellow in their Climate and Global Change program. For more than 30 years, the NOAA post-doc program has supported some of the very best early career researchers working in climate science. The program is also extremely competitive, with only four fellowships being made last year across the entire US.

Under terms of this award, Uday will be moving to the University of California, Santa Barbara to work with Prof. Samantha Stevenson, who is a leading expert in climate modeling and paleoclimate. Under the terms of this award, Uday will collaborate with Prof. Stevenson to expand his work on drought and water use in Nepal and the surrounding Himalayas region.

Uday has been an integral part of our team since 2015 and this fellowship makes for a wonderful conclusion to his time with us at Minnesota (except for his defense, which will be held in early May). I'm excited to see the work from his collaboration with Sam and am so so happy all his work here and Nepal have paid off in such a grand fashion.
