Erika Roesler, 2002 Space Grant Intern, 2004 NAU Grad

Erika Roesler, Space Grant Intern from 2002-2003, studied cometary photometry with Dr. David Schleicher of Lowell Observatory.  The internship gave Erika valuable experiences with observational astronomy, data analysis, and presenting research.  Following the internship and graduating from NAU, Erika continued her education and received a doctorate in Atmospheric Science from the University of Michigan.  Her research is constantly evolving and has included studying combustion, aerosols, cloud processes, the Arctic environment, and turbulence.  A future research direction includes high-resolution global climate modeling.  Erika is grateful for the lessons learned from the NASA Space Grant which laid positive foundations for developing good practices in research and science.
