“My trip to Tanzania was life changing in the sense that it affirmed my career goals and provided some reassurance that I am headed on a path I truly believe in,” said Christian Cole, ’18, a Health Science major.
A team of researchers has received a $2.3 million APRA-E grant to develop a new hybrid engine technology that is powered by fuel cells and internal combustion. The system is designed to be a highly efficient engine with lower emissions than current technologies and could lead to new and greener applications in electricity generation and transportation.
Kevin Reed’s research interests include understanding the capability of global climate models to simulate extreme weather events and the impact of model design choices on the simulation of such extremes in a global context. One specific area of his research has focused on the ability of the National Center for Atmospheric Research’s Community Atmosphere Model (CAM) to simulate tropical cyclones at high-resolutions. Additionally, he studies how extreme events, including tropical cyclones, may change as a result of a changing climate.
