Eli Tziperman

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.
