CLaSP researcher to receive Outstanding Postdoctoral Fellow Award

Climate & Space research fellow Dr. Leonardo Regoli has been selected to receive a 2018 Outstanding Postdoctoral Fellow Award. 

Dr. Regoli studies how unmagnetized celestial bodies interact with their local plasma environments (including Mars, and its interaction with the solar wind), as well as the moons of the outer planets (including Titan, Rhea and Enceladus at Saturn, and Europa and Callisto at Jupiter). He is currently at work developing a new magnetometer for use at ground stations, as well as on small satellites. As part of this hardware development effort, a modified commercial magnetometer will be flown on two upcoming CubeSat missions (a comparative magnetometry mission in collaboration with Boston University and the Michigan-Bicentennial Archive (M-BARC)Dr. Regoli's faculty advisor is Prof. Stephen Bougher. 

The Outstanding Postdoctoral Fellow Award recognizes postdoctoral fellows at the University of Michigan who have demonstrated a breadth of excellence in all areas of research, teaching, mentoring, service, and leadership. The University selects 10 postdoctoral fellows for recognition each year. Awardees will be recognized and honored at a special luncheon during the 2018 National Postdoc Appreciation Week in mid-September. 

Congratulations, Dr. Regoli!
