ERG PhD Student Adam Hanbury-Brown Awarded NASA Research Grant

ERG PhD Student Adam Hanbury-Brown was recently awarded funding through NASA’s Future Investigators in NASA Earth and Space Science and Technology (FINESST) program, which is designed to support graduate student-designed and performed research projects that advance NASA’s science, technology, and exploration goals.

“My FINESST project is relevant to their goal of advancing understanding of “Earth as a system”. I plan to use NASA’s satellite data to study how topography, climate, and fire characteristics predict post-fire forest regeneration outcomes, and then incorporate these insights into forest regeneration algorithms within Earth System Models (ESMs),” Hanbury-Brown stated.
