Anthony Broccoli

Distinguished Professor

Tony Broccoli is Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science. He currently serves as Co-Director of the Rutgers Climate Institute and he has recently served as Co-Chief Editor of the Journal of Climate. His primary research interest is climate dynamics, especially the simulation of past climates and climate change. He is a Fellow of the American Meteorological

Enrique Curchitser


Enrique Curchitser is Professor of Climate and Oceanography. His research interests are in understanding coastal physical-biological systems and how they are forced by, and contribute to, the climate system. He has worked in the North Pacific, Atlantic, Indonesian Throughflow, the Bering Sea and Arctic regions. At Rutgers, he leads the Earth System Modeling Laboratory, which

Steve Decker

Associate Teaching Professor

Steve Decker is the director of the Meteorology Undergraduate Program at Rutgers, and is an Associate Teaching Professor in Atmospheric Science. Steve teaches courses in the areas of weather analysis and computational methods, while his research focuses on issues facing weather forecasters and the weather forecasting enterprise. Steve obtained MS and PhD degrees from the

Xiaomeng Jin

Assistant Professor

Xiaomeng Jin is an Assistant Professor of atmospheric chemistry. Her research aims to advance our understanding of the source, chemical formation, and impacts of air pollution, especially surface ozone and fine particulate matter pollution, using remote sensing observations along with computer models and in-situ measurements. Jin received her PhD from Columbia University, and worked as

Dujuan Kang

Assistant Research Professor

Dujuan Kang is an Assistant Research Professor in ocean and climate science at Rutgers. She uses both theoretical and numerical methods to study multi-scale ocean dynamics and their interactions with the atmosphere and ecosystem. Her research aims to improve the understanding and prediction of regional-to-global climate and environmental change. Dujuan obtained M.S. and Ph.D. degrees

Ben Lintner


Ben Lintner is a Professor in Atmospheric Science at Rutgers. His research primarily addresses the question of why it rains where it does, when it does, and how much it does in the Tropics, with specific interests in understanding the controls on large-scale “diagonal” rainfall bands like the South Pacific Convergence Zone and the connection

Mark Miller


Mark Miller is a professor of Atmospheric Science. He currently serves as the Director of the Rutgers Photochemical Assessment Monitoring Site and has recently served as the Director of the Rutgers Institute for Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences. His primary research interests are cloud physics, radiation transfer, remote sensing, and the cloud-topped marine boundary layer.

Alan Robock

Distinguished Professor

Alan Robock is co-director of the Rutgers Impact Studies of Climate Intervention (RISCI) lab and co-leader of the Geoengineering Model Intercomparison Project (GeoMIP).  He graduated from the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1970 with a B.A. in Meteorology, and from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with an S.M. in 1974 and Ph.D. in 1977, both

Mary Whelan

Assistant Professor

Mary Whelan uses innovative methods to study the land carbon sink. The amount of carbon taken up by plants is the largest flux in the carbon cycle and cannot be observed directly at scales larger than a leaf. We can gain some insight into this flux using a combination of atmospheric tracers and remote sensing

Lili Xia

Assistant Research Professor

Lili Xia is co-director of the Rutgers Impact Studies of Climate Intervention (RISCI) lab.  She received her Ph.D. in Atmospheric Science at Rutgers in 2014, and has been working as a postdoc and now Research Associate in the RISCI lab for her entire time at Rutgers.  She is interested in climate impacts, particularly the interactions
