Chaowei Jiang will receive the Sunanda and Santimay Basu Early Career Award in Sun-Earth Systems Science. He will present a talk and will be formally presented with the award at the 2015 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, to be held 14–18 December in San Francisco, Calif.
Chaowei Jiang has been awarded the Sunanda and Santimay Basu Early Career Award in Sun-Earth Systems Science. The award recognizes an individual scientist from a developing nation for making outstanding contributions to research in Sun-Earth systems science that further the understanding of both plasma physical processes and their applications for the benefit of society.
Chaowei Jiang received his B.S. in astronomy from Beijing Normal University in 2006 and a Ph.D. in space physics from the Graduate College of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) in 2011 under the supervision of Xueshang Feng and Fengsi Wei. He is currently working as an associate research scientist within the SIGMA Weather group at the State Key Laboratory for Space Weather, National Space Science Center of CAS. His research interests include reconstruction and analysis of the solar magnetic field, data-driven models of solar flares and coronal mass ejections, and advanced numerical techniques for space weather–related modeling.
