Daniel Gilford

Hello! I am a doctoral candidate in the Program in Atmospheres, Oceans, and Climate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

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


My studies primarily focus on the thermal structure of the tropopause region and its implications for the climate system. In particular, I have been studying how changes in upper troposphere/lower stratosphere temperatures can impact the intensities of tropical cyclones.  I’m also interested in the sea-level rise and coastal risk, climate policy, and science communication.
