Dr. Reginald Blake, Dr. Hamid Norouzi, and Dr. Akm Samsur Rahman were awarded a $88,445 grant for a 22-month period for their collaborative research project “Understanding Climate and Extreme Weather Events in the Greater New York Area” as part of the Department of Energy (DOE) Research and Development Partnership Pilots program. The DOE granted $4.7 million in funding for 35 new projects to colleges and universities that are under-represented in its foundational climate, earth, and environmental science research investments. The grants aim to position under-represented academic institutions to make major scientific contributions in support of the DOE’s science mission.
