Graduate Fellows

A long tradition and a priority since the PCC was founded in 2001, graduate fellowships are awarded to incoming graduate students as incentives to joining the UW and engaging in interdisciplinary scholarship. Welcome Becca and Noah, our two new first year PCC graduate student fellows.

Becca Cleveland Stout
Grad Fellow (ESS)

“I graduated from Harvard College in 2019 with a degree in Earth and Planetary Sciences, and am now a first-year PhD student in ESS working with Gerard Roe. I hope to use a combination of simple energy balance models, GCM outputs, and statistical analysis of paleoclimate proxies to constrain low-frequency climate variability over the late Holocene. Outside of research, I enjoy improv, backpacking, and playing pickleball.”

Noah Rosenberg
Grad Fellow (OCN)

“I am a graduate student in the School of Oceanography studying physical oceanography. My primary research interest is quantifying variability in the ocean from paleoclimate records and models, and how this can inform present day climate modeling. I am originally from New York City, and hold a BA in Physics from Swarthmore College. Outside of school, I enjoy running, hiking, and playing the cello.”

A new interdisciplinary graduate fellowship for continuing students with a clear passion for working across academic boundaries was made in partnership with CICOES this year. Welcome, Lindsey!

Lindsey Davidge
Interdisciplinary Grad Fellow (ESS)

“I am a graduate student in the Dept. of Earth and Space Sciences, where I work with Eric Steig within the glaciology and climate research groups. I am currently using isotope-enabled atmospheric simulations and geophysical ice sheet measurements to study long-term, climate-driven changes to the West Antarctic ice sheet. I look forward to meeting new friends and colleagues at in-person campus events when it is once again safe to do so!”

Postdoctoral Researchers & More

In addition to collaborating in awarding graduate fellowships, each year CICOEs brings in new postdoctoral researchers, many of whom find community in the PCC.

Yibin Huang
Postdoctoral Researcher (NOAA/PMEL)

Yibin Huang is looking for ways to constrain the mechanism governing carbon and oxygen cycling in the context of a changing climate. Yibin and Jonathan are part of the Global Observations of Biogeochemistry and Ocean Physics Group at NOAA/PMEL and CICOES, led by Andrea Fassbender.
