Window on physics, the world of Moetasim Ashfaq

Dr. Moetasim Ashfaq (Moet), an atmospheric physicist in the Computing and Computational Sciences Directorate and Climate Change Science Institute (CCSI) at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), spent his childhood and initial college years in Kashmir, Pakistan, home to some of the highest mountains in the world. It is perhaps not unexpected that Moet would one day work in climate science, coming from Pakistan, a country regarded by many as extremely vulnerable to climate change; however, he got here from there by a circuitous route.
