Keynote Speaker: Peter Huybers

We are pleased to announce that this year’s keynote speaker will be Professor Peter Huybers of Harvard University.

Peter got his Ph.D. from the MIT Program in Atmospheres, Oceans and Climate in 2004. Since then, he has become one of the rising stars in paleoclimatology, recently winning an extremely prestigious MacArthur Fellowship (a.k.a. the “genius grant”.) Peter’s research has focused on the great mystery of glacial cycles, using sophisticated timeseries analysis, novel proxy techniques, and simple models. This reasearch has helped advance our understanding of how changes in orbital parameters (Milkankovitch cycles) provoke a physical response from the climate system.

We are greatly looking forward to hearing from Peter at the GCC!
