PLENARY SPEAKERS / Leigh Orf

Leigh Orf

University of Wisconsin
Professor

I received my Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science from the University of Wisconsin –  Madison in 1997. In August 2015 I returned to the UW as an Associate Scientist working for the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies (CIMSS), part of the Space Science and Engineering Center (SSEC). From 2003 – 2015, I was a Professor of Atmospheric Sciences in, and more recently Chair of, the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Central Michigan University.

My research focuses on severe weather, including supercell thunderstorms, tornadoes, and downbursts. I am especially interested in obtaining new insight into the atmosphere by efficiently utilizing high-performance computing (HPC) resources, such as the Frontera supercomputer.
