Each year, the Research Corporation for Science Advancement, in collaboration with the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, selects approximately 50 early-year scientists to participate in the Scialog Negative Emissions Science Fellowship. This year, CEE Assistant Professor Joshua Jack was selected for this prestigious fellowship alongside other accomplished researchers. Fellows will engage in a scientific dialogue on climate change at the Annual Scialog Conference this November.
The conference revolves around conversations on the decarbonization and removal of greenhouse gasses from the atmosphere. Professor Jack will join other fellows in the exploration of potential advancements in negative emissions technology through the augmentation of mitigation strategies such as carbon sequestration and other fundamental approaches. Fellows will also have the opportunity to build teams with other researchers and compete for additional project funding.
“Rapid decarbonization is imperative to avoid the severe economic and environmental implications of global climate change,” said Professor Jack. “I am honored to be selected for this early-career fellowship and excited to engage with other interdisciplinary researchers to advance the frontier of negative emission science.”
Professor Jack’s selection as a Scialog Negative Emissions Science Fellow and participation in the conference will be just one of his many accomplishments this year. This summer, he was honored as an invited speaker at the highly esteemed Gordon Research Conference, American Chemical Society and Electrochemical Society Conference.
On behalf of CEE, we would like to extend our congratulations to Professor Jack and wish him luck at the conference this November.
