Alexandra Jahn, PhD
Fellow of the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research and Assistant Professor of Atmospheric & Oceanic Sciences, University of Colorado Boulder
Alexandra Jahn is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (ATOC) and a Fellow at the Institute for Arctic and Alpine Research at the University of Colorado Boulder. Prior to joining the CU Boulder faculty, Alexandra spent five years at the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder. She earned a PhD in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, and a Diploma degree in Meteorology from the Free University of Berlin, Germany.
Alexandra’s group is the Polar and Paleoclimate dynamics group. Her main interests are ocean and sea ice dynamics and the role of internal variability versus forced changes in the climate system. She and her group investigate both past climate states and future climate projections, with a focus on the polar regions. Alexandra’s group uses climate models in combination with observational data, to understand climate processes.
