Academic Background

I received my Ph.D degree in 1995 from the Joint Program of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. I was awarded a U.S. Department of Energy Alexander Hollaender Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellowship for studies at Princeton and have been more recently awarded a Centennial Fellowship in Global and Complex Systems from the James S. McDonnell Foundation. I am currently an Investigator with the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and am also affiliated with the Center for the Study of Complex Systems at the University of Michigan and with the Santa Fe Institute as an external faculty member.
