Joe Zambon PhD

Research Assistant Professor

Jordan Hall 4140


I am a Research Assistant Professor with the Ocean Observing and Modeling Group in the Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at North Carolina State University (Raleigh, NC).

My dissertation investigated atmosphere-ocean interaction during landfalling tropical cyclones and I received my Ph.D. from North Carolina State University in December 2014. My postdoctoral research, concluded in early 2017, was to develop the Coupled Northwest Atlantic Prediction System (CNAPS), a quasi-operational 72hr coupled (ocean-atmosphere-wave) model with real-time model validation and user-integrated functionality.

My outside interests including working as a Volunteer Firefighter and EMT with the Swift Creek Rural Fire Department in Cary, NC.  I am also a private pilot, enjoy SCUBA diving, and play recreational league ice hockey.
