Dr. Peter Huybers, a professor of climate science in the Department of Earth and Planetary Science at Harvard University, will be coming to UH for a sabbatical year. Dr. Huybers, a leading climate scientist, has won the AGU Macelwane medal, a Packard fellowship, and the prestigious MacArthur fellowship. His research looks at climate from many different points of view, from paleoclimate through the impact of volcanism to the coupling of plants with the climate system.
