Winter Welcome

2017 PCC Winter Welcome

It’s that time of year!  You are invited to gather with the PCC board, friends and colleagues, past, present and future, at the PCC Winter Welcome.

February 1, 2017 from 5:15 – 8:00 PM

Fishery Sciences Lobby and Auditorium

The event is a casual reception with a slightly formal presentation, and perhaps a game… you’ll hear:

  • LuAnne Thompson, PCC Director, talk about what’s ahead in 2017-2018 (Summer Institute, Graduate Student Activities, Climate Conversations, ….)
  • New fellowship recipients and other new climate people around campus introduced
  • Quick talks by postdocs from across campus, including:
    • Mariona Claret
    • Dan Amrhein
    • Michelle Tigchelaar
    • Malte Stuecker
    • Oliver Watt-Meyer
    • Cristian Proistosescu

Climate Postdocs and GCeCS Recipients Featured at the 2016 PCC Winter Welcome

The Winter Welcome is one of the PCC’s opportunities to bring climate scientists together from across campus, around common research and education goals. This years’ event, held February 10, 2016 in the FSH auditorium and lobby, included a general PCC program overview by LuAnne Thompson, PCC Director, including introductions of 2015/2016 Graduate Fellows (Hilary Scannell, Ocean, Advised by Mike McPhaden; Michael Diamond, Atmos, Advised by Rob Wood; Rebeca Cecilia De Buen Kalman, Evans, Advised by Alison Cullen). This year we also engaged the growing population of climate postdocs from across campus and congratulated the many graduate certificate recipients.

Postdoctoral research scientists from across campus were invited to showcase their work and interests using one slide, giving a quick talk. Not only did we get to learn more about what postdocs are doing, many postdocs learned for the first time, what the PCC is all about.

Many thanks to the following for participating:

  • Irina Trukhanova, Future of Ice
  • Sarah Myhre, Future of Ice
  • Yongfei Zhang, Atmospheric Science
  • Anne Gothmann, Oceanography

LuAnne Thompson, PCC Director, also recognized five graduate students (Katherine Heal, Ocean; Elizabeth Maroon, Atmos; Alison Saperstein, Evans; Hayley Dosser, Ocean; Kristin Poinar, ESS) who completed the interdisciplinary training requirements of the Graduate Certificate in Climate Science in the past year.
