Allison A. Wing

Department of Earth, Ocean & Atmospheric Science

Florida State University


I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science (EOAS) at Florida State University (FSU). I also hold an appointment as an Adjunct Research Scientist at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. My group studies atmospheric dynamics and climate, with specific interests in Tropical Cyclones and Tropical Convection. My research interests include the organization of tropical convection and how this modulates tropical and global climate and climate sensitivity, the process of tropical cyclone formation, variability of tropical cyclone intensity, and extreme weather and climate. I use theory, idealized numerical modeling, and analysis of observations and comprehensive climate models to tackle these problems.

If you are interested in pursuing research related to tropical convection, tropical cyclones and climate, please contact me (see below)! Prospective graduate students may apply through the EOAS department website.

I currently have two open postdoctoral scholar opportunities in tropical convection to contribute to an NSF-funded project to analyze radar data and model simulations from the upcoming ORCESTRA/PICCOLO field campaign. For more information about ORCESTRA/PICCOLO see and here. Position one is on convective organization and position two is in moist thermodynamics (co-advised with Prof. Morgan O’Neill at the University of Toronto). For more information, contact me or see the advertisement, also at under Job Opening 56953. The application deadline is March 1, 2024.
