Nic Wayand

former Ph.D. student (2016)

Nic finished his B.S. in Atmospheric Science with a minor in Applied Mathematics at the University of Washington in 2009. As an undergraduate he worked as a research assistant for the UW Atms. Dept maintaining a network of rain gauges in the Olympic Mountains and helped set up monitoring stations in the Cedar River Watershed. For his Master's thesis, he examined the potential of regional downscaled mesoscaled models as a means to fill in the observational gaps in complex terrain. He was awarded the UW's Panel on Climate Change graduate fellowship for 2010-11, a Valle Fellowship to study in Norway for 2011-12, and an NCAR Visiting Fellowship to study in Boulder, CO for 2012-13. He was awarded a NASA Earth Space Science Graduate Fellowship to study intermittent snow. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher with John Pomeroy at the University of Sasketchewan. When not out in the woods or on the snow, Nic spends most of his time on the water sailing his 26' boat 'Zoe'.
