CLaSP researcher to receive Kenneth M. Reese Outstanding Research Scientist Award

 From Climate & Space department Chair Professor James Slavin: 

"I am very pleased to announce that Climate & Space associate research scientist Valeriy Tenishev has been selected to receive the Kenneth M. Reese Award for Outstanding Research Scientist for 2017-2018.”

The award is given annually to College of Engineering faculty who demonstrate sustained excellence in research and related scholarly activities.

Mr. Tenishev received his ME from the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and his Ph.D in Space Science and Scientific Computing from Climate & Space. He joined the department in 2014, and works at the U-M Center for Space Environment Modeling. CSEM “develops high-performance, first-principles based computational models of the space environment and uses these models to predict space weather, to understand space mission data, and to further our understanding of the solar system.”

The award will be presented in March at the Faculty Awards Dinner Dance at the Michigan League.

Congratulations, Valeriy!
