Speaker Information:

Dr. Brian Ancell is an Assistant Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX where he has taught and performed research since 2009. He studies atmospheric predictability, data assimilation, and modeling primarily involving high-impact weather events such as severe convection, winter precipitation, and wind power. Dr. Ancell runs an operational, high-resolution deterministic and ensemble forecasting system at Texas Tech while he works on developing probabilistic forecasting tools that can add value within large ensemble systems. He also studies the effects of human activities such as irrigation and wind farms on the weather.

Dr. Ancell received his undergraduate degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Illinois and his Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences from the University of Washington.
