Third-year PhD student Radost Stanimirova has been awarded a NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship starting in September. Her fellowship application, “Dynamics of Global Rangelands: Modeling Vulnerabilities and Monitoring Impacts from Humans and Climate Change,” will use remote sensing to improve our understanding of how range-land ecosystems are being affected by pressures exerted by humans and climate change. Her fellowship is one of 69 awards that were selected from a pool of 385 applications. This summer, Radost is working at the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis in Austria, where she was awarded a Young Scientist Summer Program Fellowship to work on related questions.
