Michael Battalio


I am a postdoctoral associate at Yale University, and I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.   I have a Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science from Texas A&M, a Master of Science in Meteorology from Mississippi State University  and a double major in Geoscience (Professional Meteorology) and Physics along with minors in Mathematics, Communication, and Piano Music.   I have received multiple scholarships and fellowships including the 21st Century Fellowship from the American Meteorological Society, the S-STEM fellowship from the National Science Foundation, and the Rodriguez Scholarship from the American Meteorological Society.

On the lighter side of things, I spend time gardening and particularly enjoy roses, daylilies (and I have a registered variety.), and orchids.   I play the piano, organ, saxophone, and cello.   I was head drum major for the Famous Maroon Band, the marching band at State, for four years and was a graduate assistant overseeing the drum majors for the 2010 and 2011 seasons.   I prefer mostly classical music, and my favorite composer is Brahms.   Other hobbies include astronomy, investing, and general tinkering with code.   I also love mint chocolate chip ice cream, unsweet tea, coffee (cream, no sugar) and sherry.
