Hi, I'm John Allen, an Assistant Professor of Meteorology in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Central Michigan University. My research spans a variety of interdisciplinary topics, but primarily focuses on severe convective storms around the globe, their characteristics, climatology and response to factors such as climate variability and change.
Our group pursues problems that aren't your typical mesoscale meteorology, and brings together insights from climate dynamics through synoptic meteorology and explores their respective influences on the storm scale. We leverage modeling, statistical and big data analysis techniques to better understand problems like:
We always are always looking for new students to join the group at the Ph.D. level through the Earth and Ecosystem Science program. Projects could include those found through this page, but Dr. Allen is happy to work with students to find other sources of support. Feel free to email Dr. Allen with questions or to express your interest.
Dr. John T. Allen
