Associate Director (2023-24)
Nico Sartori grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio where he became fascinated by the weather at a very young age in elementary school. Beginning in August of 2019, he got accepted into The Ohio State University undergraduate program for Atmospheric Sciences. Since becoming a Buckeye, Nico joined the Scarlet and Gray Forecasting Club as a lead forecaster and later as president introducing the area of broadcasting to the club. In the summer of 2022, he gained research experience working for the Center of Western Weather Water Extremes (CW3E) at Scripps in San Diego, California. He worked on a research project on how the Madden-Julian Oscillation System (MJO) has impacted extreme precipitation in a warming climate in the western United States. Through the internship, Nico gained a research interest in climate variability as well as extreme weather such as tornadoes and hurricanes. Recently, Nico accepted an offer into the graduate program for Ohio University starting in the fall of 2023 in Atmospheric Sciences as the Associate Director of Scalia Labs. After graduate school, he plans on entering a career in operational meteorology such as in the National Weather Service (NWS) or the private sector.
