2018 Climate and Life Interns
Summer interns spend four weeks at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory working individually and in small groups on research projects designed and led by our scientists. The goal of this program is to inspire and train the next generation of scientists and to advance our outreach to and education of the broader society.
By the end of their internship, students understand what a career in science involves. They also gain critical science skills, including how to read research papers, perform measurements, collect and present data, and report on their research.
In 2018, the following students worked with Christine McCarthy, a Lamont-Doherty geophysicist whose research examines the physics of ice: Naomi Habtu, Camille Lederer, An Nguyen, and Jeremy Yarden.
Jonathan Nichols, a Lamont-Doherty paleoecologist who studies whether warming temperatures will cause Arctic peat bogs to decay or expand due to improved growing conditions, worked with the following students: Gillian Herzberger, Sophie McGrady, Emma Venarde, and James Zhang.
