Jesse Zhang

Atmospheric Scientist

Jesse Zhang conducts research focusing on atmospheric science, culminating most recently in a project studying polar vortex weakening. His work has led to two first-author publications in leading scientific journals, “Journal of Geophysical Research” and “Space Weather,” and success at prestigious national science fairs, such as the Intel Science Talent Search. He just graduated from high school in Boulder, and will be studying computer science at Harvard University in the fall.
