Shiv Priyam Raghuraman

Raghuraman, who is in the Program in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, aims to understand the causes of energy imbalances in the atmosphere and how these imbalances impact the climate. His research focuses on the radiative forcing of the most important greenhouse gas — water vapor — which has a strong positive feedback on the climate system. He is advised by V. “Ram” Ramaswamy, director of the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory and a Princeton lecturer with the rank of professor in geosciences and atmospheric and oceanic sciences.
