Gas-phase kinetics of free radicals; catalytic processes in the atmosphere controlling global change of ozone; high-altitude experiments from balloons and aircraft; development of laser systems for stratospheric and tropospheric studies; development of high-altitude, long-duration unmanned aircraft for studies of global change.
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.
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.
Isotope geochemistry and cosmochemistry; the formation and early differentiation of the terrestrial planets; the chemical evolution of Earth's crust-mantle system; Earth systems evolution and environmental geochemistry.
Professor of the Natural Sciences and co-Director of Graduate Studies
Isotope geochemistry and historical geobiology. Re-animating ancient ecosystems and ocean chemistry using stable isotope systems, chemical speciation techniques, modern microbial experiments (for calibration) and theoretical considerations.
