Prof. Clark Evans is an Associate Professor with and the Program Coordinator for the Atmospheric Science Program at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He joined UWM's faculty in 2011 after completing a postdoctoral fellowship with the Advanced Study Program at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. He received B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Meteorology from Florida State University in 2004, 2006, and 2009, respectively.
Clark's research interests lie with better understanding the dynamics and predictability of meso- to synoptic-scale meteorological phenomena such as mesoscale convective systems, convection initiation, and tropical cyclones. He actively mentors his graduate students and collaborates with NCAR, university, and NWS colleagues on research in these areas. A full listing of current research activities may be found on the Research portion of this website.
Currently, Clark serves as an Associate Editor for Monthly Weather Review, a member (and incoming Vice Chair) of the AMS's Committee on Weather Analysis and Forecasting, and organizer of the 2018 AMS Special Symposium on Impact-Based Decision Support Services. He has published fourteen manuscripts in the peer-reviewed literature, many with his students as lead author, and has served as PI or co-PI on federally-funded research projects totaling approximately $850,000. A full account of his funding, publication, service, and award record may be found in his Curriculum Vita.
On a personal level, Clark is interested in the weather, faith, running, sports, the outdoors, photography, cartography, historical accounts, and traveling. He is a fan of the great outdoors, particularly when the sky is blue, the fields are green, and the air is warm. Summer sunsets over Lake Superior are a particular joy. He counts his wife of eight-plus years, Susanna, as well as his mom, grandparents, and those who persevere in the face of great adversity among the people that inspire him.
