Education

Career Overview

Dan received an B.S. in Mathematics in 1998 at the University of Georgia. He then worked as a part-time meteorologist at The Weather Channel in Atlanta, Georgia until the summer of 1999, at which time he moved to Fort Collins, Colorado to attend Colorado State University. In 2002 he received an M.S. in Atmospheric Science at CSU, working under the direction of Dr. David Randall on modeling convective downdrafts. During the Spring of 2002, Dan taught three undergraduate meteorology courses at the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley.

Dan joined the Regional and Mesoscale Meteorology Branch (RAMMB) at the Cooperative Institute for Research in the Atmosphere (CIRA) during the spring of 2002. In September 2004, he joined NOAA/NESDIS as a Research Meteorologist, and finished his PhD in 2008. His research interests focus on both geostationary and polar-orbiting satellite detection of mesoscale phenomena, including severe storms. He is currently heavily involved in preparations for the next generation of geostationary satellites (GOES-R), which launched in November 2016.
