Brad Marston joined the Brown Physics Department in 1991. A graduate of Caltech, he received his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1989. He did postdoctoral work at Cornell University and has been a visiting scientist at the Institute for Theoretical Physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara, a visiting professor at MIT, and a visiting associate at Caltech. He is currently a member of the KITP advisory board, and a member of the APS organizing committee for a proposed Topical Group on the Physics of Climate. He works on quantum many-body physics and on developing and integrating methods of nonequilibrium statistical physics into general circulation models of increasing complexity and realism.


Looking for new problems to solve? Consider the climate

Even though global warming remains a heated political topic, physicists should not ignore the intellectual challenge of trying to model climate change. Read More »
