Jordan Clark, PhD


Hi, I am Jordan. My work is at the intersection of climate and health, with a focus on the effects of extreme heat.

I completed my PhD in Geography at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, during which I worked with NOAA’s Southeast Regional Climate Center and Carolinas Integrated Sciences and Assessments. My graduate research focused on linking heat stress indices directly to health outcomes, assessing microclimatic variations in heat stress using wet bulb globe temperature (WBGT), and developing a forecast tool to predict WBGT across the eastern two-thirds of the United States.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family — including dog Miles and cat Loki. My hobbies include all things plants. I am currently on year 4 of breeding my own breed of tomato variety.
