This personal web site contains information about Jordan Gerth, an associate researcher at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Go Badgers!

I completed my Bachelor of Science degree on May 17, 2009, after four years of undergraduate coursework at UW-Madison. I earned Comprehensive Honors designation in my Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences major. With Honors in the Liberal Arts, I also majored in Mathematics and Political Science. Following the completion of graduate coursework and a thesis, I earned a Master of Science degree in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at UW-Madison on December 24, 2011. After finishing additional coursework and writing a dissertation, I earned a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at UW-Madison on December 22, 2013.

As part of the Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences graduate program at UW-Madison, I completed the following courses between September 2009 and May 2013:

  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 610 (Geophys Fluid Dynamics I)
  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 630 (Intro to Atm & Ocn Physics)
  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 745 (Meterologicl Satellite Appl)
  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 611 (Geophys Fluid Dynamics II)
  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 640 (Radiatn in Atmosphere&Ocean)
  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 773 (Boundary Layer Meteorology)
  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 718 (Dynamics-Moist Convectv Sys)
  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 740 (Advanced Atmospheric Radiation)
  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 660 (Intro-Physical Oceanography)
  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 771 (Numerical Mod-Meteorology)
  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 935 (Seminar-Physical Meteorology)
  • Computer Sciences 635 (Tools & Envirnmt-Optimizatn)
  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 900 (Seminar-Meteorology)
  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 915 (Seminar-Dynamics)
  • Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences 945 (Radiatn&Remote Sensing Seminar)
In addition, I earned a professional development certificate in technical leadership from the Wisconsin School of Business Center for Professional and Executive Development (WSBCPED) and UW-Madison's Department of Engineering Professional Development after completing the following courses between October 15, 2012, and November 15, 2013:
  • Expanding Skills for Engineers in Transition to Management
  • How to Influence without Direct Authority
  • Finance and Accounting for Non-Financial Executives
  • Project Management: Planning, Scheduling, and Control
  • Effectively Managing Technical Teams
  • New Product Development

I also completed the Managing Upwards course in November 2014, Change Management course in March 2016, and Business Acumen and Strategy course in September 2017, earning an additional professional development certificate, in advanced management and leadership, from the WSBCPED.

I hold an Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL) Foundation Certificate in IT Service Management (ITSM).
