ERT’s Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Jingli Yang, recently met this year’s recipient of a fellowship named in her honor at the University of Maryland – the Dr. Jingli Yang Geographical Sciences Graduate Research Fellowship. ERT’s sponsorship will enable Yi Zhang, a Graduate Research Assistant and Ph.D. Candidate studying Geographical Information Science and Cartography, to conduct research over the summer semester. The two were introduced on May 2, 2018, at the UMD College of Behavioral and Social Sciences Scholarship and Donor Recognition Dinner.
Dr. Yang’s fellowship, now in its fifth year, provides support to graduate students within the Department of Geographical Sciences with research interests in the areas of earth observations, data processing and data products, and records and data analysis.
