Adele Igel wins prestigious ONR Young Investigator Program Grant

The Office of Naval Research recently announced their 2020 class of Young Investigator Program (or “YIP”) recipients. This list included LAWR’s Adele Igel, an assistant professor and cloud physicist. Professor Igel and her research group study properties of cloud droplets and ice crystals and how they impact our weather and climate including how much precipitation falls and where it falls. The YIP award will allow Professor Igel’s group to study marine fog off the coast of California and around the globe. As part of the award, Professor Igel will be collaborating with researchers at the Naval Research Lab in Monterey, CA.

The YIP is the Federal government’s oldest grant program aimed at supporting early career tenure-track faculty who show exceptional promise for doing creative research.
