Talmor Meir, Student Poster Presenter at DHS Network Summit
Stevens Institute of Technology student Talmor Meir has been selected to present a research poster at the prestigious Fourth Annual U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Annual University Network Summit.
Talmor’s poster session comes as part of Student Day, intended to foster networking and continued interest in homeland security fields while highlighting the successes of DHS sponsored students. Student Day provides an opportunity for DHS sponsored students to make presentations on their research; hear from an insightful panel of DHS, federal, and national laboratory employees on employment; receive the latest news from the Student and Alumni Network; and network with other students and Center of Excellence directors.
Talmor’s research project entitled "Coastal Urban Prediction for NYC", involves advancing and analyzing predictive atmospheric models in the metropolitan area. She has worked with Dr. Alan Blumberg and Dr. Julie Pullen in the Maritime Security Laboratory, to offer first responders and emergency medical teams with vital information about future atmospheric events that improve efficiency. A major goal of this study is to create a local coupled ocean-atmospheric model for the NYC area.
The DHS Poster Session will be held on March 9, 2010, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the foyer of the Grand Ballroom and is open to the public.
Judging for the top three posters will be conducted during the reception. The winners of the poster competition will be announced on March 10 at the luncheon of the 4th Annual DHS University Network Summit.
Congratulations to Talmor Meir on being chosen for this distinction and please visit the Maritime Security Laboratory for more information.
