Sharon Zhong, professor in the Department of Geography, Environment, and Spatial Sciences at Michigan State University, has recently been elected as a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society (AMS).

The society elects fellows in recognition of “outstanding contributions to the atmospheric or related oceanic or hydrologic sciences or their applications during a substantial period of years.”

Zhong’s research focuses primarily on atmospheric boundary layer and mesoscale processes with an emphasis on those induced by topography and landscape heterogeneity, the transport and dispersion of air pollutants especially smoke from prescribed and wildland fires, and regional climate and climate change with a particular emphasis on the Great Lakes region.
