Tapio Schneider is the Theodore Y. Wu Professor of Environmental Science and Engineering at Caltech and a Senior Research Scientist at JPL. His research focuses on how the climate of Earth and other planets comes about and may change, for example, by changes in atmospheric circulation or cloud cover. To improve climate predictions, he is currently developing next-generation climate models that fuse observations with process models of the Earth system. He was named one of the “Top 20 Scientists under 40” by Discover Magazine, was a David and Lucile Packard Fellow and Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow, and is recipient of the James R. Holton Award of the American Geophysical Union.
