Vita: Andrea M. Allan


I am an instructor for both the atmospheric sciences and the geography programs. I do not currently accept graduate students.

My previous research specialized in large-scale atmospheric circulation and dynamics; present and future climatology; and global and regional climate modeling and statistical analysis.
