What do our students say?

 

I have a passion for solving problems with cancer, specifically Endometrial Cancer. There is a big disparity in the survivor-ship of women of color with this cancer in particular. I have already secured a post-doctorate position to further my research. The Applied Science and Technology Ph.D. has given me the knowledge, confidence and credentials to pursue ground-breaking solutions.

Sherette Godfrey - AST Ph.D. Student

 

I have always loved chemistry. The Applied Science and Technology Program gives me an opportunity to pursue real-world applications and solve problems using chemistry.  I am interested in solving major world problems using my knowledge of chemistry, research and theory plus empirical methodologies. This is what we are learning with an outstanding faculty and excellent labs and facilities.

Doctoral candidate Shajedul (Shak) Karim published an article, co-authored by Dr. Yuh-Lang Lin, about a tropical cyclone track prediction method using a numerical model to prepare for cyclone landfalls.

Karim describes the article, which was featured in Dynamics of Atmospheres & Oceans.

In this study, a series of numerical experiments are conducted using the Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model in order to understand the dynamics of track deflection accompanying Tropical Cyclone (TC) Sidr 2007. Track deflection – the movement of the TC path -- is measured by its divergence from its actual landfall location.

We found that the simulated track of this TC is sensitive to environmental flow, topography (the Himalaya Mountains), and model vertical structure that led to the alteration of the simulated TC track.

One of NC A&T’s Applied Science & Technology’s (AST) Atmospheric Science faculty members, Dr. Yuh-Lang Lin, has been noted as one of the top two percent of globally cited researchers, according to recent research statistics from Stanford University.

According to Dr. Lin, his “work on mesoscale dynamics and modeling is well received and quoted due to its help in understanding the dynamics and improving forecasting of severe local storms and cyclones, especially when they encounter orography.” Orography is the study of the topographical
relief of mountains, hills, and any part of a region’s elevated terrain.

Dr. Lin’s area of research includes orographic effects on airflow and weather systems, atmospheric dynamics and modeling of cyclones, wildfires, gravity waves and turbulence, local storms and cloud
microphysics.

If researchers go to Research Gates and Google Scholar Citations, the websites lead you to his profile. His publications and research can be found on the Mesolab website.

Currently, Dr. Lin and Dr. M.L. Kaplan at Embrey-Riddle Aeronautical University are funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) to conduct research, along with five A&T graduate students, on the dynamics and modeling of wildfires in California and Arizona. They are preparing for five
presentations in the 2021 American Meteorological Society’s 13ᵗʰ Fire Symposium.

NC A&T Professor Gives Presentation for University of Colorado on Biomass Burning Aerosols from Sub-Saharan Africa Biomass Fuels

Dr. Solomon Bililign, an Applied Science & Technology (AST) and Physics professor at NC A&T gave a presentation on January 15, 2021, about laboratory work that represents the first study of the optical and chemical properties of wood fuel samples used domestically in Sub-Saharan Africa. Hosted by Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (ATOC), the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR), Geology and Geography, the University of Colorado Boulder gives bi-monthly presentations called the Joint Earth Seminar Series (JESS).

Air quality is a serious issue affecting health, mortality, and human productivity in the megacities of Africa. Africa is the least studied region of the world and air quality research in African megacities has received little attention from the global atmospheric chemistry community. In Africa, indoor and urban air quality remain poor and the depth of air quality problems is largely unquantified. Urbanization, coupled with increased industrialization, growing ownership of motor vehicles, and continued use of biomass as a domestic energy source, may lead to a substantial worsening of air quality not only in large African cities, but also across the continent.
