ESE: Areas of interest

Both prospective and current students ask us about ESE areas of concentration and what kind of jobs they can imagine after graduation.

Here are few examples


REMOTE SENSING:

       Seasonality of bird migration responds to environmental cues, scientists show

       The November Issue of Science magazine published the finding of Prof. Alex Gilerson (ESE affiliated faculty) in the paper, "Open-ocean fish reveal an omnidirectional solution to camouflage in polarized environments http://science.sciencemag.org/content/350/6263/965.full

       ESE alumnus Vini D., Engineer, does: "Field work duties include soil, groundwater, soil vapor, and indoor air sampling, often exposed to inclement weather and harsh site conditions, usually alone or in teams of two; Coordination with regulatory agencies such as NYSDEC, NYCDEP, NYCOER"

       ESE alumnus Micheal S. was Engineering Aide, Con Edison  and he " Worked with Meteorologist in setting up Weather Stations across NYC area (mostly Westchester County and Staten Island)"

       Read about OceanOptics

 

ENERGY:

       ESE alumna Marisol B. works as Hydropower Engineer,  on-site contractor to the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, making critical R&D efforts to expand electricity generation from clean energy resources

       ESE alumnus Kerrile O. works as Energy Modeler at Sustainable Energy Analytics, LLC company focused on energy conservation, comfort and building durability in residential buildings 

       ESE students Berenice O., Oksana J, Safat C. have internships as Engineering Aide at Con Edison

       ESE students Luis A., Irina A., Jonna T are Technology Interns at CUNY Building Performance Lab

       MS in ESEE alumna Ingrid T. is doing:"Analyze energy data from New York City Buildings. Create models based on outside air temperature and other weather variables. Contribute to written reports for the City of New York." 

 

WATER RESOURCES:

      ESEE graduate student Equisha G.'s (Master of Science in Earth Systems and Environmental Engineering) paper was featured in Eos Research Spotlights

"Detection of recent regional sea surface temperature warming in the Caribbean and surrounding region

      ESEE graduate student Qahtan A. worked on the project "Relative Coastal Vulnerability Assessment of National Park Units to Sea-Level Rise" together with the USGS team during Summer'16

      ESE student Lawrence V. investigated links between NOAA Soil Moisture Network datasets, including in-situ measurements of Soil Moisture, Precipitation, and Soil and Air Temperatures, with ENSO and other teleconnections.

     ESE alumnus Omar H. was intern at US Environmental Protection Agency working within the Clean Air and Sustainability Division on various projects.

     ESE alumnus Vini D. is the Staff Engineer at Langan Engineering & Environmental Services. His  field work duties include soil, groundwater, soil vapor, and indoor air sampling, often exposed to inclement weather and harsh site conditions

    ESE alumnus Mustafa E. works as Water Distribution Engineer at New York City Department of Environmental Protection.


Other way to learn about research opportunities in different areas is to attend workshops & symposia and to exchange opinions with the presenters. See some reports below:

CUNY CREST End-of-Summer Research Symposium

2016 CUNY Summer STEM Research Symposium
