Tristan Abbott is a postdoctoral associate in the Cronin group. He studies the dynamics of clouds and convection, primarily by combining theory and idealized numerical modeling, and focuses on understanding how interactions between clouds, convection, and other components of the Earth system influence weather and climate. Tristan received a PhD in atmospheric science from EAPS in 2021 and a BS in Computer Sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2016.
