The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has selected Professor Brooke Liu to join their Science Advisory Board (SAB). Dr. Liu is one of three social scientists on the board and the only communication scholar.
The SAB is composed of approximately 15 members with balanced representation among preeminent scientists, engineers, educators, and science policy experts, reflecting the full breadth of NOAA areas of responsibility. The SAB advises the Under Secretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere on strategies for research, education, and the application of science to operations and information services.
Liu commences her three-year term on the SAB in June 2021. She joins Dr. Eugenia Kalnay, Distinguished University Professor of the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Science, as the second UMD faculty member on the board.
