William Boos completed his MS at MIT and continued there to get his PhD in Atmospheric Science (2008.) He is now an Assistant Professor of Geology and Geophysics at Yale. Professor Boos’ research focuses on the fluid dynamics of Earth’s tropical atmosphere. One emphasis is monsoon circulations, which deliver water to billions of people in socially vulnerable, agricultural economies. Despite the importance of monsoon rainfall, there is no established theory that explains the observed variability of monsoons, and climate models make disparate predictions for next-century changes in monsoon rainfall. In his work, he combines theory, observational analyses, and numerical models.
Prof. Boos focuses his time on climate dynamics and societal impacts.
