Prof. Allison Wing

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science (EOAS) at Florida State University (FSU). Prior to arriving at FSU in January 2017, I was a National Science Foundation (NSF) Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, in the Division of Ocean and Climate Physics. I currently maintain an appointment there as an Adjunct Associate Research Scientist. I received a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science from MIT in 2014 under the advisement of Professor Kerry Emanuel in the Program in Atmospheres, Oceans, and Climate, and a B.S. in Atmospheric Science from Cornell University in 2008.

Personally, I'm originally from New York and I enjoy going to the beach, gardening, photography, biking, cooking, listening to music, and decorating for Christmas.
