This personal web site contains information about Jordan Gerth, an assistant 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 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 and Change Management course in March 2016.

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