About Me

I am currently a postdoc at MIT in the Program in Atmospheres, Oceans, and Climate. I recently defended my doctoral thesis, Land-Atmosphere Interaction and Radiative-Convective Equilibrium; my PhD advisor was Kerry Emanuel. You can find me in office 54-1717 of the Green Building at MIT, or reach me by email at twcronin at mit dot edu.

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.
