2012 Shandel Awards
The Shandel Education Plus Fund in Planetary Sciences and LPL provided travel funding for three students this year.
Ingrid Daubar received funds for travel to Moscow for the 7th European Strategic Meteor Workshop. Ingrid will present her work on the impact flux inferred from the fresh martian craters. Ingrid's advisor is Alfred McEwen.
Cecilia Leung will spend up to a month in Boulder working with Scot Rafkin (SWRI) being trained on use of the Mars Regional Atmospheric Modeling System (MRAMS). She will also attend the Comparative Climatology of Terrestrial Planets Workshop to be held in Boulder in June. Cecilia is working with Peter Smith.
Juan Lora, who is working with Joellen Russell (Geosciences), received support to attend the Summer School on Atmospheric Modeling at the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) in Princeton, N.J.
The Shandel Fund was established to support travel expenses outside the State of Arizona during summer break for undergraduate or graduate students in the Department of Planetary Sciences and Lunar and Planetary Sciences.
Congratulations to Ingrid, Cecilia, and Juan!
