Michael Gallagher is a postdoctoral research scientist working for the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) at CU Boulder within the NOAA Earth System Research Laboratories. His research is centered around studying the atmosphere in the Arctic and its central role in the coupled climate system.

He is passionate about sharing his work with K-12 students and community members, particularly students in rural and “Title 1” schools. The goal of this program is to bring Arctic science and observations into the classrooms of these students.
