Roger Fu

Roger Fu

Assistant Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences
Arriving July 2017

Roger Fu will be joining the faculty of the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University in July 2017.  His research interests include the formation and interior evolution of the Earth and other planetary bodies.  Roger's primary tool is paleomagnetism, which he complements with geodynamical modeling. 

Peter Huybers

Peter Huybers

Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences and of Environmental Science and Engineering

Peter Huybers is a Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University whose research interests lie in developing a better understanding of the climate system and its implications for society.  On-going research involves interactions between volcanism and glaciation, trends and predictability of extreme temperatures, and implication of climate change for food production.
