JOHN TEN HOEVE, Stanford PhD student studying atmospheric sciences




Major: Civil and Environmental Eng.

College/Employer: Stanford University

Year of Graduation: G

Picture of John Ten Hoeve

Brief Biographical Sketch:

My name is John Ten Hoeve and I am currently a 3rd year PhD student in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. My research is in atmospheric modeling and the effect of biomass burning aerosols on clouds and precipitation. Before coming to Stanford in 2006, I attended Penn State and received my undergraduate degree in meteorology. I have always been very interested in the weather, even from a young age. As an undergraduate, I participated in a campus weather forecasting service that generated local forecasts for the area, and also served as a broadcaster on local radio and television stations. Since then my interests have slightly changed, and I am now more focused on larger scale climate issues such as global warming, yet I still can't help to check the current weather several times a week. I also like to play and watch baseball, basketball, football, and golf, as well as the piano.
