Assistant Professor Winston Chow granted the FASS Award for Promising Researcher

Assistant Professor Winston Chow, faculty from the Department of Geography and an Adjunct Professor with IWP, has been granted the FASS Award for Promising Researcher (APR). This award is presented to researchers who have produced research that shows potential impact and promise.

Dr Chow’s research focuses on the physical processes, impacts, and mitigation of urban heat islands, urban vulnerability to climate change, and sustainable urban climatology with a focus in tropical and subtropical cities.

The nomination for this award was primarily due to his article titled, “A multi-method and multi-scale approach for estimating city-wide anthropogenic heat fluxes” published in the journal Atmospheric Environment in 2014.
