Scientific Experience in Extreme SituationsAqsa Patel, senior scientist at Philips Healthcare, started her career as a graduate student and postdoc at CReSIS. "Concepts [from] my radar days [that were] challenging at that time became easy to me, and I can apply it in my current practice."
Mentorship at the Ends of the Earth"It was an excellent mentorship situation [working for] NASA and NSF programs. Deploying these radars every six months to a to a remote place where there's not spare parts, [you] learn early on that you need to build and design durable [things that] don't break down in harsh environments."
New Name, Same CReSIS
Read a letter from CReSIS director Carl Leuschen about our new name and what it means for our future as a research center.
CReSIS has a robust team of students, researchers, engineers, and other staff members working to better understand the changing dynamics of glacial regions, and transfer that knowledge to the larger scientific community.
