New appointments in the Geospace Section of NSF’s Division of Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences

It’s a distinct pleasure for us to announce that Dr. Ruth Lieberman has taken the position of Program Director for the Aeronomy Program.  Dr. Lieberman comes to NSF from GATS, Inc, where she is a Senior Research Scientist specializing in the analysis of satellite and ground-based remote sensing data and in furthering our understanding of middle atmosphere dynamics.       Dr. Lieberman earned her bachelor’s degree in meteorology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1981, and an M.S. in atmospheric sciences from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1983.  She received her PhD. in Atmospheric Science in 1992 from the University of Washington. Amongst her many scientific accomplishments is ground-breaking work on lower atmosphere forcing on the middle atmosphere.  During her career, Dr. Lieberman also has served in many important community functions, including as a member of a NASA Heliophysics Roadmap Committee and as Editor for JGR-Atmospheres.   Furthermore, Dr. Lieberman holds a position as Affiliate Professor at University of Alaska, Fairbanks, through which she has supervised several graduate students.   We are extremely grateful for the extensive experience and broad expertise Ruth will add to the Aeronomy program.

Likewise, we are very happy to announce that Dr. Carrie Black has joined us as Associate Program Director. As a Program Director at large in the section, Carrie will work across all our programs.  Most recently, Carrie held an AGS Postdoctoral Fellowship under which she has carried out computational space physics research at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.  Before that she was a NASA Postdoctoral Fellow also at Goddard.    She received her PhD in Physics from the University of New Hampshire.   Her research concerns multi-scale processes that drive magnetic reconnection in magnetic configurations relevant to the solar corona and to the Earth's Magnetosphere.   In addition to her research work, Carrie has also been deeply engaged in policy and outreach involving space weather to the public and lawmakers.  She was a founding member of the American Astronomical Society/ Solar Physics Division Public Policy Committee and she has served in a number of other important organizational and outreach roles for the AAS over the last several years as well.    She has a strong interest in all areas of the geophysical and space sciences and in understanding the implications of geospace science and space weather, specifically, for critical infrastructure protection and resilience.
