Profile:

Jill Coleman is an associate professor of geography specializing in atmospheric science and applied geography. Her current research interests include the areas of synoptic climatology and hydroclimatic variability, particularly the relationship between atmospheric teleconnections (e.g., the Southern Oscillation) and Midwest flood/drought patterns. She also investigates topics in the areas of human biometeorology, tropical cyclone climatology and atmospheric hazards. She frequently teaches several introductory and advanced meteorology courses as well as the introductory quantitative methods course for geography majors.

Education:

  • PhD     The Ohio State University (Geography-Climatology)
  • MA      The Ohio State University (Geography-Climatology)
  • BA       University of Missouri-Columbia (Geography)
