Alexandra Bringer is helping to advance the technology behind climate science

As part of the ElectroScience Laboratory (ESL) at The Ohio State University, Alexandra Bringer is helping to advance the technology behind climate science for future generations as an electrical and computer engineering (ECE) senior researcher associate.

“If we want to live longer on Earth, we have to know how to preserve it,” Bringer said. “You cannot just do nothing and see what happens. It is critical to think more about preserving it.”

Originally from France, Bringer came to Ohio State to get more involved in remote sensing research. She is part of a team led by ECE Professor and Chair Joel Johnson, currently assisting NASA on several projects in this realm.

For example, Bringer said, the “UWBRAD: Ultra-Wideband Software Defined Microwave Radiometer for Ice Sheet Subsurface Temperature Sensing” project is interesting because the physical temperature of the Greenland ice sheet can be directly retrieved from the multi-frequency measurements of its own thermal emissions.
