About Me

I am currently a NOAA and HUCE Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard, working with Eli Tziperman in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences on clouds, sea ice, and storms in a much warmer Arctic. I worked as a postdoc at MIT briefly in the spring of 2014, after defending my doctoral thesis, Land-Atmosphere Interaction and Radiative-Convective Equilibrium in February 2014; my PhD advisor was Kerry Emanuel. You can find me in office 405 of the Harvard Museum of Natural History building, or reach me by email at timothy dot w dot cronin at gmail dot com.

This website will deactivate at some point when I lose my Athena account -- see my Harvard website for updates.

Before starting at MIT in the fall of 2009, I worked for three years at the Ecosystems Center at MBL in Woods Hole, in the Terrestial Ecosystems Modeling group, led by Jerry Melillo. In 2006, I graduated from Swarthmore College with an Honors Major in Physics, an Honors Minor in Math, and the Lang Award for outstanding academic accomplishment. I grew up on Cape Cod and went to high school at Falmouth Academy.
