Ashton Robinson Cook - Meteorologist
Ashton Robinson Cook always knows when a tornado, hurricane, or winter storm is coming. It’s his job to know.

But Cook has developed software called WeatherDeep that can make predictions up to two months in advance. Cook was the first African American man to earn a PhD in meteorology at the University of Oklahoma and also earned the 2017 American Association of State Climatologists (AASC) Dissertation Award for his research on tornadoes.
