Chris Slocum is a Physical Scientist with the NOAA/NESDIS/STAR Regional and Mesoscale Meteorology Branch (RAMMB). His research interests focus on how processes in the inner-core of tropical cyclones impact storm intensity and storm structure. He joined CIRA as a postdoctoral fellow in 2017 to develop tropical cyclone rapid intensification and genesis products using the GOES-R series of satellites and continued as a Research Scientist before starting with NOAA.
