Fang Pan awarded NASA Postdoctoral Program Fellowship Dr. Fang Pan

CLaSP PhD student, Fang Pan, has been awarded the highly competitive NAS Postdoctoral Program (NPP) Fellowship at the Langley Research Center in Virginia. As stated on the NPP website, “the NASA Postdoctoral Program (NPP) offers unique research opportunities to highly-talented US and non-US scientists to engage in ongoing NASA research projects at a NASA Center, NASA Headquarters, or at a NASA-affiliated research institute.” 

In the selected proposal by NPP, Fang proposed to use multiple years of hyperspectral radiances observed from space to probe questions related to climate change detections and formulation of new climate-monitoring missions, both being closely related to what Fang has been done in her PhD studies here.

The award notice arrived the day before her scheduled PhD defense on May 9th. She successfully defended her dissertation and became the newest member of CLaSP alumni. Congratulations, Dr. Pan. Dr. Pan’s advisor is CLaSP associate professor Xianglei Huang.
