2017 JPL Postdoctoral Research Day Results

Monday, August 21, 2017

Congratulations to all participants of the 2017 Postdoc Research Day on a successful poster session. Seventy-eight postdocs presented their research to the JPL community.


Of the posters presented, five were selected by a panel of judges. The awardees are:

  • Alexander Merson for his work on Predicting the number density of Hα emitting galaxies
  • Cunren Liang for his work on Measuring azimuth deformation with L-band wide-swath SAR interferometry
  • Zhan Su for his work on Explaining the trend of Antarctic sea-ice in the past three decades
  • Samuel Howell for his work on Modes of extensional terrain formation in icy satellites: Implications for surface-ocean interaction
  • Tamara Bandikova for her work on GRACE accelerometer data transplant


The annual Postdoctoral Research Day showcases the outstanding work of postdoctoral scholars in the fields of Earth science, astrophysics and space science, planetary science and life detection, and technology, instrumentation and engineering.


A plaque will be presented to the winners at the Postdoc Awards Ceremony later this year.
