The WISE Inspirations Network at Stanford
The Spring 2019 WISE Inspirations Network at Stanford (WINS) program features Kimberly Prather.
About the speaker: Kimberly Prather is the Distinguished Chair in Atmospheric Chemistry and Distinguished Professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego (UCSD). She is the founding Director of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Center for Aerosol Impacts on Chemistry of the Environment (CAICE), an NSF Center for Chemical Innovation, which focuses on developing a better understanding of how ocean biology influences atmospheric chemistry, clouds, and climate. A primary focus of her research involves understanding how aerosols impact climate, with a major emphasis on their role in modifying clouds and precipitation processes. She has received numerous awards and is an elected member of the National Academy of Engineering, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and an elected fellow of the American Geophysical Union, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
The WISE Inspirations Network at Stanford (WINS) links women graduate students, postdocs, faculty, and alumnae in science, engineering, and mathematics fields, and their allies and advocates, through quarterly meetings and communications. WINS aims to provide all with an opportunity to learn from stand-out women in these fields about the realities of their lives and work, successes and lessons learned, and to connect individuals with a network of potential mentors, protégés, and other colleagues.
