Meet Lualawi Mareshet Admasu - Atmospheric Scientist
Lualawi Mareshet Admasu is a PhD student of Atmospheric Sciences working at University of British Columbia. Currently, he is investigating why the Arctic region warms faster than other parts of the world under global warming and its effects on weather systems. Most of his work involves analyzing climate data from model outputs and observations. He also runs climate models to study how weather systems behave in response to the rapid warming of the arctic using idealized experiments. Before coming to UBC, Lualawi did his undergrad in Civil Engineering at Addis Ababa Institute of Technology in Ethiopia and later obtained his master’s in water resources engineering at KU-Leuven in Belgium.
