The Power List 2017

Distinguished Chair in Atmospheric Chemistry, Director of the Center for Aerosol Impacts on Chemistry of the Environment, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego, USA.

Making a difference for our planet. Our research on aerosol impacts on clouds can help explain why we are seeing a sudden increase in weather-related disasters.

Most successful collaboration
In environmental research, one must collaborate to make a difference on complex problems. My best collaborations have been with meteorologists, oceanographers, and marine biologists.

Most rewarding moment
Discovering that dust from 12,000 miles away in Africa (and ocean microbes) affects snowfall over California.
