Location: Mellon Institute Conference Room
The Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation announced the selection of 62 WW New Jersey Teaching Fellows for 2016. Among them is Carnegie Mellon alumnus Jacob Good (S'2015).
A research group from the CERN Cloud experiment, including Chemistry Professor Neil Donahue, have uncovered the processes behind the formation and evolution of small atmospheric particles free from the influence of pollution. The findings are key to creating accurate models to understand and predict global climate change.
