Ghosh Awarded A&WMA Scholarship

PhD candidate Pratapaditya Ghosh has been awarded the Air Quality Research and Study scholarship from the Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA). Ghosh earned his undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering from Jadavpur University and his Master’s in Civil Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur.

Advised by Professor Hamish Gordon, Ghosh's research looks to understand how aerosol particles activate to form fog and cloud droplets. His work is associated with improving low-level clouds' representation in a climate model's regional configuration. 

"I am extremely happy to receive this award,” says Ghosh. “I would like to thank my supervisor for his continuous support."

The Air & Waste Management Association (A&WMA) annually honors exceptional students pursuing studies and research in air quality, waste management, environmental management/policy/law, and sustainability.
