In addition, Auffhammer has made significant contributions in research. “He has at least seven publications and many other papers under review or in progress. He has received at least ten grants to support his research, and his reputation is increasing yearly,” writes ARE department chair Jeff Perloff. “He is off to a good start on a research career, extremely hard working, an outstanding teacher, a spectacularly cooperative member of the faculty, and generous in his public service.”
This year, Auffhammer’s “brown cloud” study was one of six papers to receive the Cozzarelli Prize from the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
