Kieran Bhatia
PhD in atmospheric sciences. Hurricane Science & Prep

Kieran Bhatia is a PhD. from Miami's Rosenstiel School and is doing post doctoral work at Princeton University. Three years ago, he started an outreach program that focuses on hurricane science and preparedness. He has spoken at over ten Rotary Clubs and a variety of schools.  To see a more detailed description of his work, started at University of Miami,  and his outreach program, go to http://hurricanes.rsmas.miami.edu/outreach/ . The last five years have been very active hurricane seasons for the Northeast and especially New Jersey. The state received significant damages from both Sandy and Irene. Traditionally, this area has not been frequented by tropical cyclones so public education regarding these natural catastrophes has not been as extensive as other regions.
