Dr Monika Sikand is an atmospheric scientist and faculty in the Department of Engineering, Physics and Technology at Bronx Community College of the City University of New York (BCC-CUNY). Dr Sikand has published research in Radiative Transfer involving in situ radiometric and mixed-phase cloud measurements collected in a unique NSF-funded study in the Arctic. Dr Sikand is a Visiting Faculty Exchange Fellow 2018 at the Cooperative Institute for Modeling the Earth System (CIMES) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (NOAA-GFDL) in Princeton University. Her research focuses on using the Arctic in situ cloud and radiometric measurements to study radiative transfer in the atmosphere, oceans and coupled systems that could help understand the radiation budget of earth, interdisciplinary education, and numeracy in undergraduate education. Dr Sikand has presented her research at various regional, national and international conferences. She has served as a National Science Foundation panelist, Grand Awards Judge at International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF), Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Reviewer, and National Science Foundation Graduate K-12 Fellow. Dr Sikand is an Astronomy coordinator and teaches Physics, Astronomy and Interdisciplinary Education in Sustainability in the Department of Engineering, Physics and Technology.
