A warm welcome to incoming researcher Raphael Hagen, a consultant in the UW CBIOMES Group.

Raphael joins Ginger and Mohammad to work on the ocean atlas project. Over the past year, Raphael, who has a background in remote sensing and glaciology, has been working at UW School of Public Health on air pollution exposure modeling.
