Daniel Gilford, PhD

Hello! My name is Daniel, and I am a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Rutgers University. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Meteorology from the Florida State University (2012), and Doctorate in Atmospheric Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2018).

You can contact me with the email link on the sidebar, and follow me on Twitter, @danielgilford.


My studies are broad. They include the future of glacial processes and its effects on sea level rise, the thermal structure of the tropopause region and its implications for the climate system, and links between the middle atmosphere and tropical cyclone intensities. I’m also interested in coastal risk, climate policy, and science communication.
