Prof. Clark Evans
Prof. Clark Evans is an Assistant Professor in the Atmospheric Science Group at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the position that he has held since joining the faculty at UWM in August 2011. Between August 2009 and August 2011, Clark was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Advanced Study Program at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado. He completed his B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in the Department of Meteorology at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida in 2004, 2006, and 2009, respectively.
Clark's research interests are broad and are motivated by a desired to provide better understanding of the dynamics and practical predictability of meso- to synoptic-scale meteorological phenomena, particularly tropical cyclones and severe local storms. He actively collaborates with colleagues at NCAR, SUNY-Albany, CSU, FSU, UW-Madison, and the NWS on research topics within these areas. A full listing of current research activities may be found by clicking on the Research tab above.
Currently, Clark serves as an Associate Editor for Monthly Weather Review and as a member of the AMS's Weather Analysis and Forecasting statement revision team. Likewise, he has received numerous awards and accolades during the course of his career, the most recent being his selection for the National Hurricane Center's Visiting Scientist Program in 2012. A full account may be found in his Curriculum Vita.
On a personal level, Clark is interested in meteorology, spirituality, running, sports, the outdoors, photography, cartography, historical accounts, storm chasing, and road trips. His favorite vacation is somewhere in the mountains or along a lake at sunrise or sunset. He is a fan of the open road, particularly when the sky is blue, the fields are green, and the air is warm. He counts his wife of three years, Susanna, as well as his mom and grandparents among the people that inspire him.
