Cristiana Stan


Dr. Cristiana Stan, Associate Professor in Atmospheric, Oceanic, and Earth Sciences, received her B.S. in Physics from the University of Bucharest in 1995, her M.S. in Atmospheric Physics from the University of Bucharest in 1996, and her Ph.D in Atmospheric Science from Colorado State University in 2005. Dr. Stan’s research interests center on climate modeling with a focus on the large-scale dynamics and predictability of tropical variability. Specific topics include the role of cloud representation in modeling the tropical cyclone activity, monsoon circulations, Madden-Julian Oscillation, and ENSO under current conditions and future climate change scenarios. She is also involved in the development of coupled climate models using super-parameterization for representing cloud-scale processes.
She teaches graduate courses in Elements of the Tropical Climate System and Atmospheric Convection, as well as undergraduate Numerical Weather Prediction and Weather Analysis and Prediction Lab
She publishes extensively in professional journals, most recently as primary author with D. M. Straus, J. S. Frederiksen, H. Lin, E. D. Maloney, and C. Schumacher on “Review of tropical-extratropical teleconnections on intraseasonal time scales” in Reviews of Geophysics, 2017.
