Founder’s Bio

Dr. James Stalker earned a Master’s degree and a Ph.D. degree in Atmospheric Sciences, with particular emphasis in Computational Fluid Dynamical Simulations of various atmospheric phenomena, from the University of Alabama (UAH) in 1995 and 1997, respectively. He also earned both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Mechanical Engineering.

Dr. Stalker founded Regional Earth System Predictability Research (RESPR), Inc. in 2002 as a New Mexico Small Business Corporation, to engage in computational atmospheric research for improving short-term weather forecasts (e.g., of precipitation (snow and rain), wind/power production). His research interests include developing highly accurate atmospheric models for various applications, state-of-the-art supercomputing technologies, peer-reviewed publications, etc. He devised a graduate level course titled “Cloud Dynamics and Microphysics” and taught for a semester. He also taught a daylong professional development course on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with emphasis on numerical methods. American Society for Mechanical Engineers (ASME), Albuquerque Chapter sponsored the professional development course…click here for more.
