Welcome to the home page of Michael (Mike) Dvorak. I am a recent PhD graduate in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at Stanford University. My main area of research, working with Prof. Mark Jacobson is quantifying where and how much offshore wind energy exists in the US and the world. I am currently working on quantifying the wind energy off the East Coast of the United States using the Weather Research and Forecasting Model (WRF).

Sailing - Weather and Charts

Keelboat sailing in the San Francisco Bay is my newly found obsession. The Bay Area is one of the best places in the world for sailing! Check out the below video of my 1980 Hunter 33 sailboat Knot Studying sailing on a windy day near Point Blunt, Angel Island.
