After earning a Ph.D. from Columbia University, I spent 12 years as a research scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution studying Earth's climate from icebreakers in the Arctic Ocean, zodiacs in the fjords of Greenland, and research vessels in the Black Sea, and South Atlantic. Since 1996 I have been at Texas A&M University's Galveston campus, where I teach courses on Earth's climate, marine resources, and population and resource scarcity. My energy-related research focuses on the complex interaction of energy availability, population growth and how renewable vs. non-renewable energy sources will change in the 21st century.
