Pamela and Vasco McCoy, Jr. Professor of Oceanography and Applied Physics; Co-Director of Graduate Studies
Eli Tziperman joined Harvard as a Professor of oceanography and applied physics in 2003. His research interests include large-scale climate and ocean dynamics, including El Nino, thermohaline circulation, abrupt climate change, glacial cycles and equable climates; advanced methods of ocean data assimilation.
Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences and 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.
Lucy R. Hutyra is an Associate Professor of Earth & Environment at Boston University. Her research focuses on the atmosphere-biosphere exchange of CO2, with a particularly focus on urban systems.
Her recent work has focused on improving ecosystem models for carbon exchange within cities, emissions inventories, and the development urban carbon monitoring systems. Hutyra is the Director of the Urban Climate Research Initiative and the Associate Director for the NRT PhD training program on biogeosciences & environmental health at Boston University. She holds a Ph.D. in Earth & Planetary Sciences from Harvard University and a B.S. in Forestry from University of Washington.
Currently a PhD student in Milano Bicocca University in Milano - Italy. Pre-PhD Diploma degree at the International Center of Theoretical Physics (ICTP - Trieste - Italy; thesis supervisor Professor Fred Kucharski,). thesis subject was Ekman Pumping mechanism driving Precipitation anomalies in Response to Equatorial Heating.
Current research intersts include: Tropical-Extratropical teleconnections; Climate Dynamics; ENSO - Indian Monsoon teleconnections; ENSO - North Atlantic Oscillation teleconnections; Aqua-Planet Simulations.
