Three researchers from NNSA’s three national labs are among 44 recipients from across the nation to receive significant funding for research as part of DOE’s Early Career Research Program. The effort, now in its sixth year, is designed to bolster the nation’s scientific workforce by providing support to exceptional researchers during the crucial early career years, when many scientists do their most formative work.

The three include:

Yunyan Zhang, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, was selected for her research titled, “The Effect of Soil Moisture and Surface Heterogeneity on Clouds and Precipitation: Inferences from ARM Observations and Large Eddy Simulations.”

Christopher Lee, from Los Alamos National Laboratory was selected for his proposal on “Precision Probes of the Strong Interaction.”

Christopher Kliewer, Sandia National Laboratories California, was selected for his proposal “Interactions between Surface Chemistry and Gas-Phase Combustion: New Optical Tools for Probing Flame-Wall Interactions and the Heterogeneous Chemistry of Soot Growth and Oxidation in Flames.”Strong Interaction.”
