Daniel Gilford, PhD

Hello! My name is Daniel, and I am a future post-doctoral associate in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Rutgers University (starting February 2018). 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, and include the thermal structure of the tropopause region and its implications for the climate system, links between the middle atmosphere and tropical cyclone intensities, and sea level rise. I’m also interested in coastal risk, climate policy, and science communication.
