Kate Meyer is awarded NSF Graduate Fellowship
Congratulations to Kate Meyer for being awarded a three-year NSF Graduate Research Fellowship!
Q. Kate, can you tell us a little about yourself?
I'm a first-year graduate student in the Mathematics PhD program at the University of Minnesota. You might be surprised to know that I majored in biology, not math, at Carleton College. After graduating I became interested in using mathematics as a tool to address environmental issues, and completed the Smith post-baccalaureate program in mathematics to prepare for graduate study. I enjoy the interdisciplinary nature of climate research.
Q. What is your proposed research?
I'm interested in a variety of topics, including using ocean box models to understand oscillatory behavior ocean circulation, modeling resilience of ecosystems using dynamical systems, and facilitating the integration of intermittent renewable energy sources into the grid.
Thank you, Kate. We look forward to hearing more from you and fellow MCRN collaborators!
