Chris Slocum Colorado State University
This is a photograph of the Lake of Glass that I took while hiking
in Rocky Mountain National Park during the spring of 2010.
I am a Graduate Research Assistant and Doctor of Philosophy Candidate in the
Schubert Research Group at Department of Atmospheric Science, Colorado State University.
I am working on tropical cyclone rapid intensification under the direction of Drs.
Wayne Schubert and Mark DeMaria.
In addition to focusing on improving the understanding of tropical cyclones, I am interested in global numerical weather prediction, statistical forecasting methods, and data representation. I also volunteer my time to benefit the meteorological community as well as to improve the public's understanding of the weather.
Outside of the research and professional realm, I enjoy exploring and photographing the stunning vistas of the Colorado Rockies from Rocky Mountain National Park to the tops of the Colorado 14ers (mountains with summits greater than or equal to 14,000ft).
