”I joined Aeris to work with industry leading scientists and engineers to provide solutions to challenging and impactful problems.”
Andrew Annunzio, PhD
Dr. Annunzio received a B.S. in Geography at the Ohio State University in 2006, a M.S. in Meteorology from the Pennsylvania State University in 2008, and a PhD in Meteorology from the Pennsylvania State University in 2011. Dr. Annunzio has approximately ten years of experience in applied meteorology and mathematics, and his expertise includes artificial intelligence, atmospheric turbulence, atmospheric transport and dispersion (AT&D), climate analysis, large eddy simulation (LES), numerical weather prediction (NWP), signal processing, source term estimation (STE), statistical modeling, time series analysis, and weather forecasting.
While Dr. Annunzio was at Penn State his work included data assimilation, AT&D, atmospheric turbulence, and source term estimation. His dissertation work focused on the latter research topic, as he developed a novel STE algorithm to locate the release locations for many different release scenarios. After graduating from Penn State, Dr. Annunzio joined the National Center for Atmospheric Research and its spinoff Science and technology for Atmospheric Research. At these companies, Dr. Annunzio’s work focused on utilizing numerical weather prediction models and large eddy simulations to perform defense analyses such as CBRN system testing and evaluation.
From 2014 – 2018, Dr. Annunzio worked as operational and research meteorologist at two separate hedge funds. At these funds, his work shifted to performing research and developing statistical models for long range weather forecasting applications, specifically for natural gas markets. Dr. Annunzio joined the Aeris team in 2018, and continues to perform consulting services for the financial industry.
