Tell us about a hands-on learning experience you’ve had at UTEP? Working with Professor Fitzgerald in the atmospheric physics lab has been an excellent experience for me. She is not only an excellent PI (Principal Investigator) but also a caring, supportive and understanding advisor. A major part of my research involves using a mini-LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) called a ceilometer, which is a laser instrument located on the roof of the Physical Science Building. To begin with, Professor Fitzgerald ensured that I get the right training from the best in the field. I was fortunate to get a chance to visit Howard University, Beltsville campus in Washington D.C. for two weeks and receive hands-on training from Dr. Ricardo Sakai, who is also one of my Ph.D. committee members. This training from Dr. Sakai helped me understand the minor details of the instrument and set me up for its application in my research work.
