Professor, Geology & Geophysics

Mark Pagani is a Professor in the Department of Geology and Geophysics and the former Director of the Yale Climate and Energy Institute, an interdisciplinary institute that gathers talent, coalitions and collaborations from across Yale and beyond to determine the appropriate and implementable solutions to the problem of climate change. His research group studies the character of ancient climates by reconstructing patterns of regional and global temperature change, hydrological conditions, and the evolution of atmospheric carbon dioxide. This work helps prioritize the factors responsible for past climatic events and places future climate change within a geological context.
