J.J. Shinker

University of Wyoming Director

Dr. Jacqueline “J.J.” Shinker is an Associate Professor of Geography at the University of Wyoming. Her research focuses on modern and paleo synoptic and dynamic climatology associated with precipitation variability and drought in headwater regions of the intermountain west. In particular, she is interested in the processes within the climate system that govern precipitation variability and influence water resources. An important component of her work is the application of data-visualization techniques such as animated map sequences that simultaneously incorporate the spatio-temporal components of the climate system. J.J. teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on weather and climate, environmental change, natural hazards and advanced climatology. J.J. received her Ph.D. in Geography from the University of Oregon.
