WHAT: “Science by the Glass” is an informal discussion series hosted by the Texas Tech University Climate Science Center. The series is designed to bring members of the community and Texas Tech faculty and students together to discuss topics related to science, climate and society. The latest discussion, “Beating the Heat,” will be led by Texas Tech faculty member Jennifer Vanos.
WHEN: 6 p.m. Tuesday (May 10)
WHERE: Fox & Hound Sports Tavern, 4210 82nd St., Ste. 240
WHO: Jennifer Vanos is an assistant professor of atmospheric science in the Department of Geosciences. Her research into human biometeorology and bioclimatology, which connect weather and climate to human health, focuses specifically on extreme heat, atmospheric radiation and air pollution exposure in urban areas. Vanos is co-manager of the Texas Tech Atmospheric Science Instrumentation Lab at the Reese Technology Center and works within the interdisciplinary Climate Science Center, where she collaborates with lead climate scientists and climate experts across the south-central U.S. She is on the American Meteorological Society’s Board of Environment and Health and an integrated member of the International Society of Biometeorology as chair of the Students and New Professionals Group.
