James Duncan, MS
Graduate Research Assistant - National Wind Institute
James Duncan is a recent graduate of The Florida State University where he received both his M.S. and B.S. in Meteorology. While at Florida State, his research was centered about climatic variability with an emphasis upon the distribution of extreme events utilizing stochastic theory. As a native of South Florida, James interest in the atmospheric sciences blossomed with the historically active 2004 Atlantic hurricane season where he witnessed the devastating effects of two landfallling hurricanes on his hometown. James is currently pursuing his Ph.D. in Wind Science and Engineering with a focus on wind energy and the development of ‘smart’ wind farms.
