Dr. Josh Gebauer

Research Scientist

CIWRO/NSSL

Josh is a research scientist at the Cooperative Institute for Severe and High-Impact Weather Research and Operations (CIWRO). His research interests include boundary-layer observation techniques, boundary-layer dynamics, and kinematic analyses with radars. His work often combines insights from analytical models and observations to create analyses that help to improve the understanding of boundary-layer processes and flows. Josh also works on developing integrated data products from boundary-layer observations to help with the creation of the next-generation boundary layer observation networks. Prior to joining CIWRO in 2022, Josh was a post-doc at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) with the Earth Observing Lab (EOL) where he worked on integrated data products for the proposed Lower Troposphere Observation System (LOTOS). Josh was previously a member of BLISS during his time in graduate school at the University of Oklahoma (2015–2020) when he was one of the original operators of the CLAMPS systems. Outside of work Josh enjoys spending times outdoors doing things like kayaking, fishing, and golfing. He is huge fan of the Pittsburgh Pirates will watch every game that he possibly can, even if they are usually bad.
