Three SoM Faculty Members Receive Awards for Excellence in Research and Creative Activity
The University of Oklahoma’s Vice President for Research and Partnerships launched a new program this year to award OU faculty for excellence in research and creative activities. Three School of Meteorology faculty members received awards.
Dr. Elinor Martin is the recipient of the inaugural award for excellence in natural sciences. Dr. Martin was recognized “for her pioneering research on the science of ecosystems-climate variability, bridging social science, changing climate dynamics, and fundamentals of the hydrological cycle.”
In addition to categorical awards, awards were also given to faculty members for success in obtaining an extramural research grant in excess of $1 million.
Dr. Amy McGovern received this award for the NSF-funded AI Institute: Artificial Intelligence for Environmental Sciences (AI2ES), which received a grant for $20 million.
Dr. Bob Palmer also received this award for Palmer for the DOC-NOAA funded project: Exploitation of the Horus All-Digital Polarimetric Phased Array Weather Radar, which received a grant for $2 million.
Congratulations Dr. Martin, Dr. McGovern, and Dr. Palmer!
