Mandli Chosen for National Early Career Faculty Innovator Program
Kyle Mandli, associate professor in applied physics and applied mathematics, was named to a new interdisciplinary program from the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). He is one of nine early career faculty members from U.S. universities chosen to work with NCAR scientists to investigate the impact of climate change and natural hazards on coastal areas with the goal of building greater societal resilience.
Mandli, an expert on storm surge, will focus on creating better forecasting and predictive capabilities for coastal flooding due to storms, while other researchers will look at topics ranging from human health to marine resource management. NCAR, a research and development center funded by the National Science Foundation, conducts world-class research in earth system science. The Early Career Faculty Program is a two-year program established to connect NCAR with university faculty in the social sciences and STEM outside of NCAR’s core expertise to address complex research problems.
