Dr. John Uehling joined NCICS in 2022 as a postdoctoral researcher with a background in tropical meteorology and monsoons. In December 2023, he moved to a Climate Data Analyst position within the institute.

Since joining NCICS, Dr. Uehling has utilized nClimGrid daily rainfall data to analyze changes in the extreme precipitation events associated with tropical cyclones in the United States. He has also worked with the rapid attribution team, analyzing heat waves in the US and the potential links of those events to climate change. In addition, he has looked at developing a method to perform quality-control of extreme precipitation measurements over the US. His primary interests in meteorology are tropical cyclones, climatology, and extreme weather events.

Dr. Uehling earned his BS in meteorology from the University of Oklahoma in Norman, OK. After completing his BS, he went on to complete his MS and PhD at Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL. While at Florida State University he focused his research on the Australian monsoon and rainy season. His research at Florida State helped to uncover changes in the monsoon and their potential links to anthropogenic climate change.

Dr. Uehling was born in North Carolina, but has lived in Canada, Oklahoma, and Florida as well. He is excited to be back in his home state and working on fascinating and important scientific projects. He enjoys hiking, sports, and watching football when he’s not in the office.
