Sibley School student selected for Rudd Mayer Fellowship
Jeanie Aird, a Ph.D. student in the Sibley School has been selected as one of only six 2020 Rudd Mayer Fellowship and Wind at Our Backs recipients.
This fellowship from Women of Renewable Energy and Sustainable Energy WRISE (WRISE) supports women to participate in the annual CLEANPOWER Conference and Exhibition and network with colleagues in renewable energy. The Rudd Mayer Fellowship is WRISE’s way of supporting women in the academic community, college students and recent graduates, who are interested in expanding their knowledge and engaging in the renewable energy field.
“I'm so grateful to be selected as a 2020 Rudd Mayer Fellow,” says Aird. “WRISE is a fantastic organization for women in the renewable energy industry, and Rudd Mayer herself was an incredible pioneer for wind energy in Colorado.”
Aird is researching wind energy as part of the Barthelmie Wind Energy Lab. Jeanie’s work uses an extensive series of high-resolution simulations funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science conducted by Professor Sara Pryor (EAS). The Cornell researchers recently released research that shows the current Department of Energy goals for wind energy are both feasible and will have almost undetectable impacts on local meteorology. The research was based on an extensive series of high-resolution simulations funded by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science.
“Working in the Barthelmie Wind Energy Lab has really enhanced my knowledge of the wind energy industry, and I look forward to using this fellowship to connect with wind energy companies across the nation,” says Aird.
