  • Title: Professor
    Department / Research Program: Environmental Sciences; Rutgers Climate Institute
    Email: broccoli@envsci.rutgers.edu
    Phone: 848-932-5749
    Detailed Profile: http://envsci.rutgers.edu/~broccoli
    Research Areas: Climate dynamics, climate modeling
    Energy Research Focus: My research group focuses on the dynamics of the climate system, with a specific emphasis on understanding the fundamental mechanisms that are involved in changes in climate. Climate models are powerful tools for learning about such mechanisms, as they enable us to test hypotheses about climate system behavior by performing controlled experiments.
