Posted on Nov. 12, 2013


Owen Shieh is presenting a talk at the TEDxHonolulu event, “Untamed skies: Where science meets humanity," on Saturday, November 16, 2013, at the Hawaii Theatre in Downtown Honolulu.

“Centuries of scientific and technological advancements have allowed us to survive the harshest of conditions, but weather remains an untamed force of nature,” said Shieh, a graduate student in the UH Mānoa Department of Meteorology.

“For TEDxHonolulu, his ‘idea worth sharing’ is that we can cultivate a stronger community by understanding the nature of hazardous weather events and paying attention to their impacts on humanity,” said Shieh.  “We can appreciate the scientific and technological advancements that allow us to better prepare and cope with the challenges posed by weather.”
