I am an assistant professor working in the Center for Integrative Geosciences at the University of Connecticut.
I grew up in North Carolina and attended the University of North Carolina at Asheville, where I majored in atmospheric sciences. I then earned a PhD from the University of Michigan in paleoclimate modeling.
I am interested in all things science. Paleoclimatology is an amazing field because it explores the intersection of so many scientific disciplines. From a practical standpoint, paleoclimatology helps us understand our climate future and evaluate climate models.
Beyond science, I am a fan of the outdoors. At the moment, I especially enjoy hiking and camping in the mountains of Colorado.
If you have any questions, or are considering a PhD in paleoclimate modeling, feel free to contact me at clay.tabor[at]uconn.edu.
