Yuanyan Jia was a postdoctoral fellow with CIGLR from Ohio State University, advised by Dr. C.K. Shum of Ohio State University and Dr. Philip Chu of NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab. Her work concerns the collection and synthesis of radar altimetric readings from the Great Lakes for the purposes of improving ice and water level observations and forecasts.
