Research Scientist Dr. Natalia Andronova passed away on June 1, 2014 after a battle with brain cancer. She passed away peacefully in the comfort of her own home, surrounded by her loving sons.Natasha cherished her work at the University of Michigan. She was an integral developer of the Master of Engineering program in Applied Climate: she defined the program, advised students, and developed new courses for it. She regularly taught classes for both graduate and undergraduate students, including Engineering Climate Change and Coping with Climate Change. She was not only an excellent teacher but a talented and hard-working researcher as well. Her participation in and contributions to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fourth Assessment Report led her to become a co-recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007. However, Natasha was widely known for more than her many achievements in climate science; her kindness and generosity were equally moving. She was admired by students and colleagues within the University of Michigan and throughout the world. Public viewing and visitation will be held Friday June 6 at Muehlig Funeral Home between 2 PM and 8 PM. Burial of cremated ashes will take place on the following Monday at Forest Hill Cemetery. Family will host a private memorial event thereafter.
