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.
He teaches courses in oceanography, climate and applied math. Before Joining Harvard he was a post doc to a prof, 1988-2003, at the Weizmann institute of science. He holds a BA in physics and mathematics, Hebrew University, Jerusalem, and a PhD in physical oceanography from the joint program of MIT and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.
Large scale climate and ocean dynamics, including El Nino, thermohaline circulation, abrupt climate change, glacial cycles and equable climates.
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.
