Michael E. Brown
Associate Professor, Department of Geosciences
Mississippi State University, USA
Dr. Michael E. Brown specializes in Land-Atmosphere Interactions. His Ph.D. work focused on the augmentation of severe storm environments by mesoscale processes generated at the Earth’s surface in the Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and Southeast regions of the United States. He has worked with cloud-to-ground lightning data in order to better understand hail processes in convective storms, isolate risks to NCAA outdoor stadiums, and understand the role of “tornado-scars” in the enhancement of convection. Michael E. Brown is also involved with educating K-12 teachers in order to bring minority groups into the Geosciences. Additionally, Mike is known for his work with hazard mitigation for college campuses. He has studies the natural and man-made hazards common to higher education institutions and has given numerous seminars on how campuses can better mitigate these threats.
