Note: On 1 July 2015 I took up the post of Halley Professor of Physics at the University of Oxford, and while I retain a number of collaborations with my colleagues at the University of Chicago, I am no longer an active faculty member there. You have found your way to an obsolete version of my web site, which is preserved for archival purposes but is no longer being updated. Please go to my Oxford Physics page, (or directly to my research group web site here ).
I am building a new group at Oxford covering a range of projects regarding planetary climate, including both exoplanets, Earth paleoclimate and global change problems. I can still be reached at the geosci email address on this page, or via the Oxford physics department.
