Matthew Gilmore, Ph.D
Associate Professor Dr. Matthew S. Gilmore received his Ph.D. in Atmospheric Sciences from Texas A&M University in May 2000, his M.S. in Meteorology from Texas A&M in May 1996, and his B.S. in Meteorology (with a minor in Mathematics) from Oklahoma University (OU) in May 1992. He performed postgraduate research as a visiting scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR; 2000-2003) and at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC; 2003-2008). He was an adjunct faculty member of OU in 2002-2003 and served as a graduate advisor there and at UIUC. He previously taught courses at both Texas A&M and UIUC and served as a tutor of undergraduate math, physics, statistics, and meteorology courses at the University of Colorado at Boulder (2000-2003). He participated in four research campaigns including COPS-91, VORTEX-94/95, TEXACAL-97, and STEPS-00. Dr. Gilmore has enjoyed collaborating with faculty, researchers, and students from OU, UIUC, and other institutions on a variety of topics including precipitation physics and lightning behavior in tornadic supercells and hurricanes, microphysics differences between high and low-plains supercells, the development of advanced microphysics schemes, and the forces maintaining long-lived tornadoes. He has authored or co-authored 11 peer-reviewed publications and is currently preparing eight others on these topics. He also enjoys visiting K-12 classrooms, Elderhostel groups, and speaking with the general public about the wonders of weather.
