Duncan Watson-Pariss previously worked as a senior research associate at the University of Oxford. His research addresses the representation of aerosols and clouds within climate models. Aerosols and clouds together represent some of greatest challenges for climate models, and Dr. Watson-Parris has pioneered strategies to capitalize on the machinery of data science in tackling these research problems. “He was hired under the Chancellor’s Joint FTE initiative to promote interdisciplinary research.The Chancellor’s Interdisciplinary Collaboratories are an opportunity to apply for multiyear funding to encourage faculty and student research collaborations across disciplines. The Collaboratories program is intended to provide fellowship support for groups of students (undergraduate, graduate, and/or professional) who will work jointly under the supervision of an interdisciplinary faculty group. The aim is to encourage faculty to form and support such groups as they develop preliminary research results sufficient to support successful applications for extramural funding.”
