Dr. Amato Evan

I received my BS in Physics from Oregon State University in 2003, and an MS and PhD in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences from the University of Wisconsin at Madison in 2005 and 2009, respectively. In 2009 I joined the faculty in the Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia, and in 2012 I moved to the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. In July 2016 I became a tenured faculty at SIO. At present, my main areas of interest are desert meteorology and climate, with a special focus on dust storms. For my work I utilize models, satellite imagery and in-situ observations. I currently teach introductory atmospheric physics, at the undergraduate level, and introductory radiative transfer, at the graduate level.
