Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences; Professor 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.

Huybers received a B.S. from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1996 and a Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2004.

My research focuses on the transfer of water and energy in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum. Currently, I am investigating water stress in agricultural systems to better constrain estimates of crop yields in future climates. I am keen on using observational data from a variety of platforms including satellites, weather stations, and eddy covariance towers to model the interactions between the land and atmosphere.
