Jim Benedict

Assistant Research Scientist, Atmospheric Sciences, University of Miami Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science
Dr. Jim Benedict is a research scientist at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, but lives and works remotely from Colorado as a visiting scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Benedict uses comprehensive and idealized global climate models to explore largescale modes of atmospheric variability in the tropics and midlatitudes on weekly to monthly time scales, tropical-extratropical interactions, precipitation extremes, and the effects of atmosphere-ocean coupling on variability. He received his B.S. from the Pennsylvania State University and Ph.D. from Colorado State University.
