Kerry Emanuel is the Cecil and Ida Green Professor of Atmospheric Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he joined the faculty in 1981 after spending three years on the faculty of UCLA. Kerry’s research interests focus on tropical meteorology and climate, with a specialty in hurricane physics. His interests also include cumulus convection and advanced methods of sampling the atmosphere in aid of numerical weather prediction. He is the author or co-author of more than 200 peer-reviewed scientific papers and two books, Divine Wind: The History and Science of Hurricanes (Oxford University Press), aimed at a general audience, and What We Know about Climate Change (MIT Press). He is a co-director of MIT’s Lorenz Center, a climate think tank devoted to basic, curiosity-driven climate research.
