Alisa Young, Ph.D.

Weather and Climate Program Lead
NOAA Research, Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory

EPP/MSI participation


  • Ph.D. Earth and Atmospheric Science from Georgia Institute of Technology, supported by the Graduate Sciences Program.
  • M.S. Atmospheric Science from University of Alabama Huntsville.
  • B.A. Physics from Talladega College.

I most likely would never have worked for NOAA without participating in the NOAA Graduate Sciences Program. It was a huge stepping stone on my career trajectory.
