DU Research Student selected for the Fulbright-Kalam Climate Fellowship

20161220 155728Tamanna Subba, Ph. D. scholar in Atmospheric Science under the joint supervision of Prof. P K Bhuyan in the Centre for Atmospheric Studies, Dibrugarh University and Dr. Mukunda M Gogoi, Scientist SE in the Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre, Trivandrum has been selected for the Fulbright-Kalam Climate  Fellowship, 2017-2018 for Doctoral research. The US-India Climate Fellowship programme named ‘Fulbright-Kalam Climate Fellowship’ to build long term capacity to address Climate Change related issues in both the countries was launched in pursuance of the Joint Statement made by the President of the United States of America and the Prime Minister of India in September 2014. Ms Subba will pursue her research in either Penn State, Washington University or Washington State University in the academic session 2017-18 as part of her current Doctoral programme in Dibrugarh University. She is one among the three selected scholars out of twenty two applicants for the Fellowship in this inaugural year. She completed her M. Sc. in Physics from Jadavpur University, West Bengal and joined the Centre for Atmospheric Studies, Dibrugarh University in 2014 as a Junior Research Fellow in the ‘Aerosol Radiative Forcing over India’ project sponsored by the Geosphere Biosphere Programme of the Indian Space Research Organization and currently working as a Senior Research fellow in the project. She is at present involved in the impact assessment of atmospheric aerosols on climate through the estimation of radiative forcing over India using synergistic approach of both measurements and modeling. Her work in the United States will basically be focused on the quantification of complex climate forcing due to aerosols and their impact on climate change in South Asia and Indian Summer Monsoon over the industrial period, utilizing regional climate model and satellite remote sensing techniques.
