Ian Boatman

Ian graduated from the University of Georgia on May 5, 2017, with Bachelor of Science degrees in Atmospheric Sciences and Geography. Ian has always had a great interest in the weather, starting from the ripe old age of 6. Ian has returned to UGA, where he's working on his Master of Science in Geography. His graduate research covers thunderstorm-related asthma epidemics, which is under the direction of Dr. Andrew Grundstein. Ian is also the Graduate Representative of the UGA student chapter of the American Meteorological Society (UGAAMS). Ian has previous on-air experience, as he has done TV forecasting for WUGA-TV and Grady Newsource. Outside of his moments of being a Weather Geek, you'll probably find Ian wearing red and black, as he is arguably the biggest UGA fanatic you'll ever meet in your life, so much so that he spent all four years of his undergraduate career as a dedicated member of the UGA Spike Squad.
